  It is now 30 years from the Soviet system’s collapse, when the Western values, based on political liberalism and free-market, were almost universally heralded as the pillar of what at that time was thought of being announced as the coming of a new world order. The fall of the Berlin Wall was perceived as a historical watershed between an age of “balance of terror” and one of resurgent hope for a largely shared peace and prosperity. A Uni-multipolar order was going to replace a Bi-polar world division, with the United States at the helm of the free nations’ bandwagon. Since that extraordinary event many things have changed and not always for the better. Many analysts started wondering whether the new order- which was supposed to be sustained by a three pronged globalization (political, economic and institutional) - was at risk, or if the three dynamics it had laid down were at a crossroads. This book tries to answer this question and respond to other concerns about the current, unparalleled economic and security world turmoil. The author argues that Western powers have been, so far, rather defensive, aimed more to protect past advances than forging new ones. Hence his wish to provide the readers with a short, yet comprehensive analysis on the daring challenges which clearly emerge from a changing process of globalization (dal risvolto di copertina del libro).
