The World Is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-First Century by Thomas L. Friedman
In The World Is Flat, Thomas L. Friedman, Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times columnist, explores the political and technological changes that have flattened the world and made it a smaller place. From the fall of the Berlin Wall to the explosion of the internet to the dot com bubble and bust and outsourcing of jobs to India and China, globalization has evened the playing field for many emerging economies. He also explains how these changes could potentially affect social and religious organizations. He argues that it's not a message of doom and gloom, but financial and political realities which require change to stay on top of them. The World Is Flat has received positive reviews with the Washington Post saying, "We've no real idea how the 21st century's history will unfold, but this terrifically stimulating book will certainly inspire readers to start thinking it all through."
