In his latest book, French economist Daniel Cohen shows that violence, rather than peace, has been the historical accompaniment to prosperity. Peace in Europe came only after the barbaric wars of the twentieth century, not as the outcome of economic growth. Cohen goes on to examine what will happen this time for today’s eagerly Westernizing emerging nations. Alex Moore finds the author manages to cover a tremendous range of ideas in a unique and entertaining way.
