About this title

Synopsis:

What Next? tackles the big questions about our global condition and collective future with a verve and authority no other commentator could match. Energy, food, water, weapons proliferation, climate change, epidemic disease—the challenges themselves are proliferating. Chris Patten digests information from a vast number of sources and analyzes the issues using his experience at the highest levels of international politics. The capacity to act is the problem, he says, not the comprehension of what we should be doing—but for reasons he explains, we have good reason for hope

About the Author:

Chris Patten is currently co-Chair of the International Crisis Group, on the Anglo-Indian Round Table, and Chancellor of Oxford and Newcastle Universities. As a British MP 1979-92 he served as Minister for Overseas Development, Secretary of State for the Environment and Chairman of the Conservative Party, being described afterwards as 'the best Tory Prime Minister we never had' (Observer). He is well known for being the last Governor of Hong Kong 1992-97, about which he wrote in East and West (1998). Both that and his most recent book, Not Quite the Diplomat: Home Truths about World Affairs (2005), were No 1 international best-sellers. He was made a Companion of Honour in 1998 and a life peer in 2005.
