Half of this new, post-Cold War world is intent on building a better Lexus, on streamlining their societies and economies for the global marketplace, while the other half is locked in elemental struggles over who owns which olive tree, which strip of land. The key question, addressed in this book, is how best to retain national identity and control over our lives while still linking up to the soulless, faceless global institutions in order to survive economically.
