I think I'll add that to my Christmas list.
"The Anglosphere Challenge
Why the English-Speaking Nations Will Lead the Way in the Twenty-First Century
Despite repeated predictions of the decline of America and the other English speaking nations (the anglosphere) as the world's pathfinding cultures, James C. Bennett believes that their collective lead will only widen in the coming decades under the impact of the next wave of technological revolution. Coining the term network commonwealth to describe the loose political entities now emerging in the world based on a common language and heritage (of which anglosphere is the first), Bennett believes that traits common to these entities--a particularly strong and independent civil society; openness and receptivity to the world, its people, and its ideas; and a dynamic economy--have uniquely positioned them to prosper in our time of dramatic technological and scientific change, provided they remain true to the demands of these traits. (Avoiding the temptation to abandon openness and dynamism is the "challenge" of this book's title.) In a wide-ranging exploration from the Industrial Revolution to our near future, The Anglosphere Challenge gives voice to a growing movement that is coming to public attention on both sides of the Atlantic."
James C. Bennett is available as a public speaker throughout the Anglosphere on the topics presented in The Anglosphere Challenge. For schedule and other information, please send inquiries to email@example.com.
Arrange to host a seminar on the ideas in The Anglosphere Challenge. This is a presentation format for not fewer than ten and not more than twenty people, meeting in day, evening or weekend round-the-table sessions. It is strongly recommended that participants have read The Anglosphere Challenge prior to the seminar. For details, please send inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org."
Could be interesting.
