    This book tells the story of the global warming challenge, describing the possible dramatic changes to the earth's climate and laying out some of the things we all can do to meet the challenge; for instance, using altenative means of generating electricity. In Global Inequality: A New Approach for the Age of Globalization, Branko Milanovic offers a new account of the dynamics that are driving inequality on a global scale. Although left slightly frustrated by its abrupt end, Duncan Green praises this brilliant and thought-provoking book for its political curiosity and insight and, more particularly, for its reflections on the possible trajectory.
