Description - Adrift: How Our World Lost Its Way by Amin Maalouf

The bestselling author of The Crusades Through Arab Eyes traces how civilisations have drifted apart throughout the 20th century and now lack the solidarity to address global threats to humankind.

The United States is losing its moral credibility. The European Union is breaking apart. Africa, the Arab world, and the Mediterranean are becoming battlefields for various regional and global powers. Extreme forms of nationalism are on the rise. Thus divided, humanity is unable to address global threats to the environment and our health. How did we get here and what is yet to come? World-renowned scholar and bestselling author Amin Maalouf seeks to raise awareness and pursue a new human solidarity. In Adrift, Maalouf traces how civilisations have drifted apart throughout the 20th century, mixing personal narrative and historical analysis to provide a warning signal for the future.

'Maalouf is a thoughtful, humane and passionate interlocutor.' - The New York Times Book Review
