Description

THE SUNDAY TIMES TOP TEN BESTSELLER 'His vision, ideas and passion shine through on every page' Ed Balls'Compelling, challenging, inspiring and very timely' Piers Morgan'Immensely powerful and persuasive...I found it exhilarating throughout' Joanna LumleyWhen the Covid-19 pandemic swept across the globe in 2020, it created an unprecedented impact.

But out of such disruption can come a new way of thinking, and in this superb book, updated to include the latest events in Ukraine and at COP26, former UK prime minister Gordon Brown offers his solutions to the challenges we face now and in the future. In the book, he states that there are seven major global problems we must address: global health; climate change and environmental damage; nuclear proliferation; global financial instability; the humanitarian crisis and global poverty; the barriers to education and opportunity; and global inequality and its biggest manifestation, global tax havens.

Each one presents an immense challenge that requires an urgent global response and solution. All should be on the world’s agenda today.

None can be solved by one nation acting on its own, but all can be addressed if we work together as a global community. However, Brown remains optimistic that, despite the many obstacles in our way, we will find a path to regeneration via a new era of global order.

Yes, there is a crisis of globalisation, but we are beginning to see the means by which it might be resolved.

Crises create opportunities and having two at once shouldn’t just focus the mind, it might even be seen as giving greater grounds for hope.

In Seven Ways to Change the World, Brown provides an authoritative and inspirational pathway to a better future that is essential reading for policy makers and concerned citizens alike.
