The beginning of the twenty first century will be remembered, Friedman argues, not for military conflicts or political events, but for a whole new age of globalization a 'flattening' of the world. The explosion of advanced technologies now means that suddenly knowledge pools and resources have connected all over the planet, levelling the playing field as never before, so that each of us is potentially an equal and competitor of the other. The rules of the game have changed forever but does this 'death of distance', which requires us all to run faster in order to stay in the same place, mean the world has got too small and too flat too fast for us to adjust?

This revised edition will have two new chapters: one on how to be a political activist and social entrepreneur in a flat world and one on the more troubling question of how to manage our reputations and privacy in a world where we are all becoming publishers and public figures.
