Very, very thought provoking

I felt the book was very well written. It opened my eyes to see what is happening in the world beyond my sheltered suburban highschool life. It also caused me to ask myself questions and think about the future, and it made me ponder the problems of the world which I will live in.

Useful insighrs.

Essays and interviews by thirty noted leaders and thinkers as varied as V.S. Naipaul and Nelson Mandela examine the condition of the world at millenium's end and offer a variety of cautions and prescriptions for the world to come. Pierre Trudeau and Isaiah Berlin on nationalism, , Akbar H. Ahmedon on Islam and the West, and Lee Kuan Yew on East Asia are among the distinguished contributors to the New Perspectives Quarterly, from which this work is drawn. Highly recommended as a valuable resource for perspectives on our troubled future, and for tragic/comic relief there is Oliver (I-don't-have-to-tell-the-truth-I'm-an-artist) Stone, decrying the public cynicism of which he ia a principal architect.
