Up the Down Escalator: Why the Global Pessimists are wrong
by Charles Leadbeater

Hardback, 2002, 371pages, very good condition, stain dots on jacket

"After the optimism prevalent during the 1990s, with the end of the Cold War and the spread of democracy, the dawn of the 21st century has seen a shift in attitude in line with the emergence of other negative forces in the world, the events of September 11th 2001 a stark example. Charles Leadbeater argues that pessimism is the most powerful ideology of our times, but claims that it need not be so. He offers an alternative vision for the future: that the fundamental forces shaping our society - innovation and technology, globalization and education, democracy and self-government - should give us grounds for optimism."
