Summary
The bestselling author of The Crusades Through Arab Eyes traces how civilizations have drifted apart throughout the 20th century and now lack the solidarity to address global threats to humankind. "Maalouf is a thoughtful, humane and passionate interlocutor." -- The New York Times Book Review. The United States is on the verge of losing all moral credibility. The European Union is in the process of breaking apart. The Arab world is embroiled in crisis. Thus divided and lacking solidarity, humanity is unable to address global threats to the environment and our health. How did we get here and what is yet to come? World-renowned scholar and bestselling author of The Crusades Through Arab Eyes, Amin Maalouf, is awake to the dangerous consequences we are about to face. In Adrift, Maalouf traces how civilizations have drifted apart throughout the 20th century, mixing personal narrative and historical analysis to provide a warning signal for the future
