Samenvatting

'It’s been a long time since I’ve read a more interesting, informing, and inspiring book than The Leaderless Revolution.' - Bill Moyers

What can we do beyond Occupy Wall Street? Political and economic systems are failing us, and it’s time for citizens to create change-individually and collaboratively. In The Leaderless Revolution, Carne Ross sounds a call to action. With dramatic stories from the United States and around the world, Ross’s analysis contrasts with the naïve, Panglossian optimism of globalization boosters like Thomas Friedman.

Uncontrolled economic volatility, perpetual insecurity, rampant inequality, and accelerating climate change are heading us into a dangerous period of prolonged crisis. Ross-a former British diplomat to Iraq who resigned over his nation’s involvement in the U.S.-led invasion-draws from his own experiences to offer an empowering new vision of how we can put things right.
