Summary
"Alex Perry, an award-winning correspondent, travels from the South China Sea to the highlands of Afghanistan to the Sahara - and observes globalization on the ground, instead of from the executive suite. Perry shows that for every winner in our brave new world, there are tens of thousands of losers. And be they Chinese army veterans, Indian Maoist rebels, or the Somali branch of al-Qaeda, they are very, very angry. Falling Off the Edge is a tour de force of frontline reporting, revealing with alarming clarity that globalization, far from being a planetary panacea, starts wars."--BOOK JACKET
