Globalization is dead. Nation states are resurgent, international trade has enriched the few rather than the promised many, and democratic values are on the retreat. The shining-eyed optimism of more open, more equal societies has given way to demagoguery and nationalism. As the problems of immigration, extremism and the economy cause the world’s nations to rethink their relationships, John Ralston Saul’s brilliantly insightful The Collapse of Globalism lights the way to where we go from here.


Informative, engaging and, above all, bitingly critical... An eminently readable book.Martin Jacques

This is the start of a new debate.Michael Maiello

Saul's arguments make original reading.
James Harkin for the Independent

Elegantly written and deeply important... Saul has provided a vital analysis of why globalization was never inevitable and always destined to fail, and what will come in its place. Sebastian Bosher

Saul brings a great breadth of literary and cultural knowledge to his task... and there is much evidence to support Saul's contention that things are going badly wrong with our planet.Paul Kennedy
