Why is half the world intent on building a better car, while the other half is locked in primordial struggles over who owns which olive tree, which strip of land? Interaction between globalization and the ancient forces of culture, geography, tradition and community governs our lives. Finding the proper balance between the Lexus and the olive tree is the ultimate theme of Friedman's ground-breaking book essential reading for anyone who wants to know how the world really works today.
