What can the world still learn from Europe and what must Europe learn from the rest of the world if it is not become a cultural museum? These and many other critical contemporary issues are explored by the author in a fascinating tour of world politics and economics enlivened by insightful interviews and pungent observation. Samuel Huntington speaks of the geopolitics of civilizations, Dominique Moisi of the geopolitics of emotions; Marjan considers the geopolitics of perceptions, which at times of change and instability can be all-important. "This is a terrific book, easy to follow, and packed with new insights and surprising facts. Peace in the twenty first century will depend on how Americans, Chinese and Europeans each see one another. Attila Marjan sifts through the smug prejudices and the naive insecurities, and brings the reader to a deeper understanding of what needs to be done to keep peace in our time" , John Bruton, former Prime Minister of Ireland and EU Ambassador to the USA "An outstanding volume in its genre. It tackles global economic, geopolitical and historical issues in a new, sometimes provocative but clever way. It draws a lot of original, surprising conclusions about the world's geopolitical prospects in a very lively and accessible prose", Peter Balazs, former EU Commissioner and Foreign Minster of Hungary
