世界是平的 | The World Is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-first Century by Thomas L. Friedman

A timely and essential update on globalization, its successes and discontents, powerfully illuminated by one of our most respected journalists.

When scholars write the history of the world twenty years from now, and they come to the chapter "Y2K to March 2004," what will they say was the most crucial development? The attacks on the World Trade Center on 9/11 and the Iraq war? Or the convergence of technology and events that allowed India, China, and so many other countries to become part of the global supply chain for services and manufacturing, creating an explosion of wealth in the middle classes of the world's two biggest nations, giving them a huge new stake in the success of globalization? And with this "flattening" of the globe, which requires us to run faster in order to stay in place, has the world gotten too small and too fast for human beings and their political systems to adjust in a stable manner?

In this brilliant new book, the award-winning New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman demystifies the brave new world for readers, allowing them to make sense of the often bewildering global scene unfolding before their eyes. With his inimitable ability to translate complex foreign policy and economic issues, Friedman explains how the flattening of the world happened at the dawn of the twenty-first century; what it means to countries, companies, communities, and individuals; and how governments and societies can, and must, adapt. The World Is Flat is the timely and essential update on globalization, its successes and discontents, powerfully illuminated by one of our most respected journalists.

《世界是平的》中,托马斯·弗里德曼描述了当代世界发生的重大变化。科技和通信领域如闪电般迅速的进步,使全世界的人们可以空前地彼此接近——在印度和中国创造爆炸式增长的财富;挑战我们中的一些人,比他们更快占领地盘。《世界是平的》新增两章,更新了报告和注释方面的内容,这些内容均采自作者考察世界各地特别是整个美国中心地带的见闻,在美国本土,世界的平坦化正在剧烈地改变人们的生活方式。

在《世界是平的》一书中,托马斯·弗里德曼首先展示了“全球化正在滑入扭曲飞行的原因和方式”(罗伯特·莱特),揭开这个世界的神秘面纱,深入浅出地讲述复杂的外交政策和经济问题,为读者释疑解惑。作者通过其对复杂外交政策和经济问题的非凡的解读能力,解释了世界的平坦化趋势是如何在21世纪来临之时发生的;这个趋势对于国家、公司、社会和个人而言意味着什么;政府和组织如何才能接受而且必须接受;为什么恐怖分子仍然想继续妄为。

世界变得平坦,是不是迫使我们跑得更快才能拥有一席之地?
