Description

Coining the term "anglosphere" to describe a loose coalition based on a common language and heritage, James C. Bennett believes that traits common to America and other English-speaking nations-a particularly strong and independent civil society; openness and receptivity to the world, its people, and ideas; and a dynamic economy-have uniquely positioned them to prosper in a time of dramatic technological and scientific change. In a wide-ranging exploration back to the Industrial Revolution and into the future, The Anglosphere Challenge gives voice to a growing movement on both sides of the Atlantic.
