A New Map of the World
‘The world is on a trajectory that threatens the security, freedom and human rights of all of us, not just the poor’, writes Ian Linden. ‘Yet we also have an unprecedented opportunity to dismantle the global apartheid of rich and poor, and remove the root causes of war, terrorism, asylum seekers and economic migration.’ We are poised between a dying age of industrial production and the new information and network society, a world as yet uncharted and lacking a shared moral language. A New Map of the World is a not only a brilliant analysis of the state of the world, but of what might justly be said and done about it by individuals, communities and churches as well as by global institutions.Linden looks honestly at the failures of Christians and Muslims, socialists and radicals, to transform their visions of a just society into reality. He proposes a tentative new blueprint for the future that draws together the case for structural changes with the vital imperative for the formation of individual character.
