9780452298941: The Leaderless Revolution: How Ordinary People Will Take Power and Change Politics in the 21st Century

“It’s been a long time since I’ve read a more interesting, informing, and inspiring book.”—Bill Moyers

What can we do beyond Occupy Wall Street? Political and economic systems are failing us, and it’s time for citizens to create change—individually and collaboratively. In The Leaderless Revolution, Carne Ross sounds a call to action. With dramatic stories from the United States and around the world, Ross’s analysis contrasts with the naïve, Panglossian optimism of globalization boosters like Thomas Friedman. Uncontrolled economic volatility, perpetual insecurity, rampant inequality, and accelerating climate change are heading us into a dangerous period of prolonged crisis. Ross—a former British diplomat to Iraq who resigned over his nation’s involvement in the U.S.-led invasion—draws from his own experiences to offer an empowering new vision of how we can put things right.

About the Author:

 Carne Ross lives in New York City.

Review:

“So bold, so full of incontestable truths and overwhelming convictions, that it should be read by every diplomat, politician and thinking citizen with the courage to pick it up.” -John Le Carré

“It’s been a long time since I’ve read a more interesting, informing and inspiring book than The Leaderless Revolution." -Bill Moyers

"Carne Ross takes up where Naomi Klein, Noreena Hertz, and others left off. This is an impassioned, idealistic critique of the state of global politics and the deepening rift between those with power and those without." -The Guardian (London)

“Intriguing...the author provides many fascinating personal insights into the crises not only in Iraq, but also Afghanistan, Kosovo, Mauretania and Sudan.” -Kirkus
