Abstract

This book is about the modern world. We have acquired deep knowledge of stars and atoms, and increasingly, of our human selves. Networks of cooperation and friendship span the globe. Yet at the same time, we have ugly politics, recurrent genocides, a deteriorating environment, and more than a billion people living in desperate poverty. How did our world become a crazy quilt of such magnificence and squalor?
