The UN, World Bank, and the IMF were all created in the radically different world of the 1940s. It is becoming increasingly apparent that our global structures are struggling to cope with the new globalized, interconnected challenges of the twenty-first century. Ian Goldin looks to the future to consider radical new approaches to our world order.

Divided Nations is an absolutely remarkable book, which provides fresh and particularly useful theoretical as well as necessarily practical insights given the present challenges facing humanity.
A state-of-the-art view of contemporary issues in global cooperation This well-written book offers no magic-bullet solutions, yet suggests some promising ways forward.
Ian Goldin has been in the kitchen, at a senior level, of national and international policymaking. It is a messy place. But, as he argues clearly and convincingly, our ability to co-operate across nations is crucial to the stability and growth of our economies. It is crucial too for the protection of our environment and reducing the grave risks of climate change. The necessary co-operation will not be easy but Goldin sets out clear principles and sketches out realpossibilities. The world should listen.
Ian Goldin stylishly describes the Gordian knot of international governance and makes some sensible suggestions on how it might be cut.
Goldin offers clear-headed analysis and practical, pragmatic solutions. A must-read.
At a time when, as Ian Goldin argues, global politics is gridlocked, we need greater international co-operation than ever before - and the institutions to sustain it - in order to cope with the sort of problems from economic imbalances to the environment which individual nation states cannot overcome on their own. Ian Goldin shows why this is imperative and how it could be done.
