Economist's 2007 Books of the Year
Financial Time's 2007 Books of the Year

For four hundred years, Britain, America and their allies have dominated the world both militarily and economically. They have won the wars - the hot wars, the cold wars and the trade wars - time and again; and yet the battle for hearts and minds has proved far harder to win. In God and Gold, Walter Russell Mead examines why this has been the case and what the overwhelming ascendancy and concentration of power in the hands of 'les Anglo-Saxons' has meant for the direction of world history. In so doing, he sheds scintillating new light on the current political, economic and cultural climate, and suggests where we might be heading from here.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"'Clever, malevolent and with spare time on his hands, Osama bin Laden is supposed to read a lot. If the CIA wants to demoralize and to distract him, it might make sure he gets a copy of Walter Russell Mead's new book.' Economist 'Mead is a scintillating writer.' Niall Ferguson, Financial Times 'Mead's is a huge subject, but he treats it with a light touch... Readers of this astute, informed and entertaining analysis may wonder whether it will stand up to the events that current and future events with throw at it. The best guess is that it will.' Robert Cole, The Times"
