Summary

The world is rapidly changing. It is growing more interdependent and more complex, with new connections and with problems that transcend national and cultural boundaries. To survive and succeed in this environment, individuals must understand the driving forces of globalization and the trends that are likely to shape our future. Employing an easily understood "connect-the-dots" metaphor, Coming of Age in a Globalized World: The Next Generation navigates the threads that surround and link humanity.

Exploring the notion of an interrelated world, J. Michael Adams and Angelo Carfagna stress the importance of world citizenship as they seek to reconcile the contrast between national bonds and global interests. They provide a comprehensive landscape of current issues and conflicts in global politics as they challenge the next generation to shape viable answers to the impending global issues.

Shedding light on the realities and myths of globalization, this book is geared toward students, educators, and all concerned for the future. Coming of Age in a Globalized World: The Next Generation offers each reader the promise of a perspective conducive to global change-an opportunity that humanity must embrace to overcome 21st century conflicts and challenges.
