Podrobný popis:

Publikace: Merchant, Soldier, Sage: A New History of Power - David Priestland. From historian David Priestland, this is remarkable book proposes a

radical approach to how we see our world and who runs it. We live

in an age ruled by merchants. Competition, flexibility and profit

are still the common currency, even at a time when Western

countries have been driven off a cliff by these very values. But

will it always be this way? David Priestland argues for the

predominance in any society of one of three broad value systems -

that of the merchant (commercial and competitive); the soldier

(aristocratic and militaristic); and the sage (bureaucratic or

creative). These 'castes' struggle alongside the worker

(egalitarian and artisanal) for power, and when they achieve

supremacy, they can have such a strong hold over us that it is

almost impossible to imagine life outside their grip. And yet there

does come a point of drastic change, usually because one caste

becomes too dominant. The result is economic crisis, war or

revolution, and eventually a new caste takes over. Priestland

argues, we are now in the midst of a period with all the classic

signs of imminent change. As the history of the last century shows,

there is good reason to be fearful of the forces that this failure

may unleash. Merchant, Soldier, Sage is both a masterful dissection

of our current predicament and a brilliant piece of history. The

world will not look the same after you read this book. Publikace: Merchant, Soldier, Sage: A New History of Power - David Priestland.
