Where is this world going ... ???
Reading "Inhertiance" by David Sanger is incredible experience. I suppose it is one of the best accounts about the global political, economical and security situation ever written. It is motivated by the drastic change in American policies expected with Obama presidency, by the dreadful facts about Iran nuclear program, Pakistan instability, North Korea convulsive attempts to drag world attention to them and their pigmy leader, terrorism and China's military programs.
The part of the book is about Bush and his misjudgments, but ultimately this is the book about the world as it is at the beginning of 2009. It shows how important are threats that we even 3-4 years ago did not even think of - like that of cyber-terrorism, or the real ability to smuggle atomic weapons to any peaceful country....
The actuality and accuracy of the book is clearly seen and heard in the recent Obama's Strasburg (April 2009) speach. He said something that plays well with the title of my review: "At the crossroads where we stand today, this shared history gives us hope - but it must not give us rest" ...
I'm sure that we mere mortals do not even think or feel how fragile is the world.
Lest we forget it - it will makes our daily steps a bit more careful and thoughtful....

This book brings the reader up to speed on the major issues facing the new president. I thought it would be a "lets bash Bush" book and there are sections which are critical. However, there is much here for those interested in our immediate future.
