Edwards' Future Positive is a remarkably coherent account of complex and diverse issues.' London Review of Books 'This courageous book pursues the biggest issue of all: how international co-operation can be raised to a higher level. The pursuit is full of intellectual excitement, arriving at conclusions that are inspiring and challenging.' John Toye, UNCTAD 'Edwards approaches problems facing the world with steady determination and a cool eye... He is remarkably persuasive, wise and extraordinarily well-informed.' Global Ideas Bank 'It is particularly refreshing to read a book which sets out how such changes might be achieved, and which is fundamentally optimistic that they can be.' David Bryer, Director, Oxfam.
