‘The term “sweeping” hardly does justice to the ambition of Indian-born Parag khanna . . . makes the pulse race’ – Economist on How to Run the World

W&N Non-Fiction • April 2016

PARAG kHANNA Connectography Mapping the Global Network Revolution an ever-increasing proliferation of cross-border connectivity between people, companies, cities and nations is reshaping the world for ever.

Which lines on the map matter most? As we accelerate into a future shaped less by countries than by connectivity, a world in which the most connected powers, and people, will win, is it time to reimagine how life is organised on Earth?

In Connectography, Parag khanna guides us through the emerging global network civilisation in which mega-cities compete over connectivity and borders are increasingly irrelevant. Yet new energy discoveries and innovations have eliminated the need for resource wars and global financial assets are being deployed to build productive infrastructure that can reduce inequality. beneath the chaos of a world that appears to be falling apart is a new foundation of connectivity pulling it together.

Connectography does for geopolitics what Sapiens did for history and anthropology, taking a macro view of the world we live in.
