Publishers Description: From Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author Ron Suskind comes a startling look at how America and the West lost their way and at our governments' struggle, day by day, to reclaim the moral authority upon which their survival depends. In a sweeping, propulsive, and multilayered narrative, The Way of the World investigates how the West relinquished the moral leadership it now desperately needs to fight the real threat of our era: a nuclear weapon in the hands of terrorists. Suskind shows where the most neglected dangers lie in the story of 'The Armageddon Test' - a desperate gamble to send undercover teams into the world's nuclear black market to frustrate the efforts of terrorists trying to procure weapons-grade uranium. In the end, he finally reveals for the first time the explosive falsehood underlying the Iraq War and the Blair-Bush coalition. The Way of the World simultaneously follows an ensemble of characters around the world who are turning fear and frustration into a desperate - and often daring - brand of human salvation. They include a striving, twentyfour-year-old Pakistani émigré, a fearless UN refugee commissioner, an Afghan teenager, a Holocaust survivor's son, and Benazir Bhutto, who discovers, days before her death, how she's been abandoned by the United States at her moment of greatest need. They are all testing Western values at a time of peril, and discovering solutions - human solutions - to so much that has gone wrong. show less
