Civilization is about to enter a new chapter in its history, yet most of us are so bogged down in our work, personal lives, and daily activities-surviving-that we forget about or don't see the big picture.

Our Emerging World offers a timely, easy-to-read, and thought-provoking treatment of modern-day social and environmental concerns, discussing how Western and world development is unfolding. Author Giovanni Burrascano provides compelling insight and perspective, aiding us in properly positioning such concerns in the wider world context. Our Emerging World explains how key historical, political, and economic factors influence the way world development has evolved, also discussing the role of rising emerging-market economies and where our civilization is headed.

The twenty-first century has seen a new level of global economic growth and globalization, yet it has also heralded in the Anthropocene epoch and important stress on global cultural diversity, society, and nature. As we face the interconnected issues of overpopulation, rising world urbanization, and climate change, we need to seek solutions and restore hope through a new way of thinking-the coming of a new Renaissance.
