The world changed fundamentally at the beginning of the twenty-first century as terrorism, war and financial collapse shook the West out of its complacency. So what happens now?

Provocative, incisive and utterly prescient, '20:21 Vision' is essential reading for anyone who wants to know how we got here - and where we're going.
