Invisible Wars. Our Next Geopolitical Challenges
Original title: Guerres invisibles. Nos prochains défis géopolitiques
A powerful essay – L’Express
An impressive review of current geo-politics – Le Point
It reads almost like a novel except that everything here is real – L’Humanité
After his bestseller L’Affolement du monde (Prix au meilleur livre géopolitique 2019, Thomas Gomart Thomas Gomart consolidates his position as a leading geopolitical author with a brilliant essay.
The pandemic threw the balance between Asia and the West off and confirmed the divide between China and the United States, moving the centre of power away from the west. Two major undercurrents – the destruction of the environment and the proliferation of technology – are coming together to become the playing field for competition about strategy, economic activity and political and social transformation.
This captivating essay sheds light on the consequences of today’s major undercurrents: the war for the environment, business competition, inequality…and exposes the hidden gears of power struggles, of the underground wars waged by financial systems, tax havens, the mafia, technological incubators and the power tech giants hold over nations and intelligence services…
Chapter by chapter, Gomart analyses each major world power’s “hidden intentions”: the United States, China Europe…and concludes with a chapter about how France can rise to the challenge and pay a role in this major game that seems to be spinning out of control.
