Well-known political scientist Ian Bremmer draws lessons from the greatest crises of the last century—including the pandemic—to show how best to handle the four great crises we will face over the next decade. Two years after the worst global health crisis in a century, the world is still struggling to regain its footing. And yet the pandemic has also served as both a wake-up call and roadmap for the limited cooperation needed to navigate the challenges ahead. In this revelatory book, Bremmer lays out a series of coming crises—US-China confrontation, future health emergencies, climate change, and the AI revolution. To survive and solve these complex problems, we must learn the lessons the pandemic can teach us, work intelligently together on issues that threaten every nation, and share responsibility for the dangers that loom over all of us. Drawing on the lessons of the past century, Bremmer argues effectively that we need a crisis big enough to frighten us into building a new international system that is built for today’s—and tomorrow’s—purpose. Bremmer tell us what governments, corporations, and individuals can do to ensure that all the destruction of recent years will have been “creative destruction” and that COVID can show us how to set a new course toward a more peaceful and prosperous future. It will take vision, stamina, and a leap of faith, but if we take practical action now, we can build a better world.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A lucid and courageous analysis of the dramatic challenges our world is facing. He presents a set of proposals that world leaders should seriously consider.” António Guterres, secretary-general of the United Nations
“My go-to guru on geopolitics is here with a dose of insight and a dash of hope…In this eye-opening read, he illuminates the possible paths forward on public health, politics, climate, and technology.” Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author
“Bremmer’s account is notable for its clear prose and concision…The author’s entirely reasonable solutions involve government action, self-sacrifice, and tolerance of opposing opinions, all of which are in short supply at the moment. An expert analysis.” Kirkus Reviews
