David IgnatiusIt's a series of meandering rants gathered around one central rant about globalization. Saul, the author of Voltaire's Bastards, argues that the very soul of the U.S.-driven global economy—free trade—is itself of dubious benefit because it spins goods around the world without creating real wealth. Certainly that case can be made, as it has been eloquently by William Greider in One World, Ready or Not. But it's not made well in Saul's book, which pops off in so many directions that a reader loses track sometimes of just what he's denouncing.
