About this item

“This is probably the most global book ever written. Its takeaway is that infrastructure is destiny: Follow the supply lines outlined in this book to see where the future flows.”—Kevin Kelly, co–founder, Wired 

In this bracing guide to a future shaped less by national borders than by global supply chains, visionary strategist Parag Khanna travels from Ukraine to Iran, Mongolia to North Korea, Pakistan to Nigeria, and across the Arctic Circle and the South China Sea to explain the unprecedented changes affecting every part of the planet. He shows how nations are less at war over territory than engaged in tugs–of–war over pipelines, railways, shipping lanes, and internet cables. Khanna argues that new energy discoveries and technologies have eliminated the need for resource wars; ambitious transport corridors and power grids are unscrambling Africa’s fraught colonial borders; even the Arab world is evolving a more peaceful map as it builds resource and trade routes across its war–torn landscape. At the same time, thriving hubs such as Singapore and Dubai are injecting dynamism into young and heavily populated regions, cyber—communities empower commerce across vast distances, and the world’s ballooning financial assets are being wisely invested into building an inclusive global society. Beneath the chaos of a world that appears to be falling apart is a new foundation of connectivity pulling it together.

“Clear and coherent rare account of the physical infrastructure of globalization, which is winning the battle for connected space, building tunnels, bridges and pipelines at an astonishing pace.”The Wall Street Journal

“An engaging geopolitical travelogue In Khanna’s view, connectivity is transforming conflict between states into competition for access to the world’s infrastructure of networks and markets.”—Foreign Affairs

“This bold reframing is an exciting addition to our ongoing debate about geopolitics and the future of globalization.”—Dominic Barton, global managing director, Mckinsey & Company
