Look Inside. How did the West overtake its Eastern rivals? And has the zenith of Western power now passed? Yet now, Ferguson shows how the Rest have downloaded the killer apps the West once monopolized, while the West has literally lost faith in itself.

Boldly argued and teeming with memorable characters, this is Ferguson at his very best. Ferguson tells his story with characteristic verve and an eye for the felicitous phrase. It feels urgent. Ferguson, with a properly financially literate mind, twists his knife with great literary brio…Ferguson ends by suggesting the biggest threat is not China but ourselves — our cowardice, drawn from ignorance, even stupidity, about our past.
