Good book, but rather dated in the end, what with the Constitution being voted down in France. It begs for a revised edition by Rifkin. The ascendancy of the EU - even within Europe - is hardly a done deal. I feel there is a good chance for some high conflict from the leaders of Germany and France as they realize that the EU is no longer their puppet.
