Description of the book "The Fourth Revolution: The Global Race to Reinvent the State":

From the bestselling authors of The Right Nation, a visionary -argument that our current crisis in government is nothing less than the -fourth radical transition in the history of the nation-state

Dysfunctional government: It’s become a cliché, -and most of us are resigned to the fact that nothing -is ever going to change. As John Micklethwait and -Adrian Wooldridge show us, that is a seriously -limited view of things. In fact, there have been -three great revolutions in government in the -history of the modern world. The West has led these -revolutions PDF, but now we are in the midst of a fourth -revolution, and it is Western government that is in -danger of being left behind.

Now, things really are different. The West’s debt -load is unsustainable. The developing world has -harvested the low-hanging fruits. Industrialization -has transformed all the peasant economies it had -left to transform, and the toxic side effects of rapid -developing world growth are adding to the bill. -From Washington to Detroit, from Brasilia to New -Delhi, there is a dual crisis of political PDF legitimacy and -political effectiveness.

The Fourth Revolution crystallizes the scope of the -crisis and points forward to our future. The authors -enjoy extraordinary access to influential figures and -forces the world over, and the book is a global tour -of the innovators in how power is to be wielded. -The age of big government is over- the age of smart -government has begun. Many of the ideas the -authors discuss seem outlandish now, but the center -of gravity is moving quickly.

This tour drives home a powerful argument: -that PDF countries’ success depends overwhelmingly on -their ability to reinvent the state. And that much -of the West—and particularly the United States—is failing badly in its task. China is making rapid -progress with government reform at the same time -as America is falling badly behind. Washington is -gridlocked, and America is in danger of squandering -its huge advantages from its powerful economy -because of failing government. And flailing -democracies like India look enviously at China’s -state-of-the-art airports and expanding universities.

The race to get PDF government right is not just a -race of efficiency. It is a race to see which political -values will triumph in the twenty-first century—the liberal values of democracy and liberty or the -authoritarian values of command and control. The -stakes could not be higher.
