About the book:

* Shows how our attempt to gain control through technology and interconnected systems actually leaves us more open to threat
* Uses a concrete systems-theory approach to explain globalizations impact on contemporary society
* Presents approaches and strategies to correct the threats of a globalized world

Is globalization reducing our ability to guide our futures? Hedley contends that although humankind has historically gained increasing power over its fate, the trajectory of control is now on a downward course. While our globalized systems provide greater scale, access, speed, and efficiency than ever before, we are paradoxically becoming more vulnerable to unseen risks thanks to the massive information and communication infrastructure. This book tells us how to take back control.
