Summary
In Reframe, Eric Knight explains how a change of focus can reveal a solution that was lying just outside your frame of vision. From terrorism to global warming, from border security to high finance, he brings a new perspective that is both exhilarating and useful. Why can't we eliminate terrorism by killing terrorists? Why can't we learn anything about climate change by talking about the weather? Why can't we resolve immigration tensions by building higher fences? And what do fishermen in Turkey have to teach us about international relations? This is an optimistic, lucid and original book by a brilliant young Australian thinker
