Join Parag Khanna, a leading global strategist and best-selling author, for a journey through the emerging global network civilization in which megacities compete over connectivity instead of borders. Discover how 21st-century conflict is a tug-of-war over pipelines, Internet cables, advanced technologies, and market access, and see that underneath a world that appears to be falling apart there is a new foundation of connectivity pulling it together.
