This book diagnoses contemporary governments as obsolete and proposes changes in values, structures, staffing, public understanding and political culture to equip governance for the radically novel challenges of the twenty-first century. It also discusses the need for radical improvements in global government to cope with dangers such as mass killing terrorism up to the possible necessity for a ‘Global Leviathan’. This is the first Report dealing with governance commissioned and approved by the Club of Rome, testifying to the significance of this book
