Europe's Promise : Why the European Way Is the Best Hope in an Insecure Age Paperback / softback
by Steven Hill
A quiet revolution has been occurring in post-World War II Europe.
A world power has emerged across the Atlantic that is recrafting the rules for how a modern society should provide economic security, environmental sustainability, and global stability.
In "Europe's Promise", Steven Hill explains Europe's bold new vision.
For a decade, Hill traveled widely to understand this uniquely European way of life.
He shatters myths and shows how Europe's leadership manifests in five major areas: economic strength, with Europe now the world's wealthiest trading bloc, nearly as large as the U.S. and China combined; the best health care and other workfare supports for families and individuals; widespread use of renewable energy technologies and conservation; the world's most advanced democracies; and, regional networks of trade, foreign aid, and investment that link one third of the world to the European Union. "Europe's Promise" masterfully conveys how Europe has taken the lead in this make-or-break century challenged by a worldwide economic crisis and global warming.
