Summary
"In High Noon, J. F. Rischard challenges us to take a new approach to the problems of the twenty-first century. Defining and then offering a brief overview of the twenty most important and urgent global problems, Rischard finds that they all have two things in common: They're getting worse, not better, and the standard strategies for dealing with them are woefully inadequate to the task. The real problem, in other words, is that in our increasingly crowded, interconnected world, we don't have an effective way of addressing the problems such a world creates. Our difficulties belong to the future, but our means of solving them belong to the past."--BOOK JACKET
