In Connectography, Parag Khanna presents a radical new take on American strategy: Connectivity rather than countries are the way to think about the 21st century.
The most connected powers and people will be the most successful. Khanna shows how mankind is re-engineering planet earth, investing up to $10 trillion per year in transportation, energy, and communications infrastructure linking the world’s burgeoning megacities together. This new global network civilizaiton has profound consequences for geopolitics, economics, demographics, the environment, and social identity. Khanna take us from Ukraine to Iran, Mongolia to North Korea, Pakistan to Nigeria, and across the Arctic Circle and the South China Sea to explain the rapid and unprecedented changes affecting every part of the planet.
