Ten Lessons for a Post-Pandemic World speaks to past, present and future, and will become an enduring reflection on life in the early twenty-first century.
In this urgent and timely book, Fareed Zakaria, one of the ‘top ten global thinkers of the last decade’ (Foreign Policy), foresees the nature of a post-pandemic world: the political, social, technological and economic consequences that may take years to unfold. In ten surprising, hopeful ‘lessons’, he writes about the acceleration of natural and biological risks, the obsolescence of the old political categories of right and left, the rise of ‘digital life’, the future of globalization and an emerging world order split between the United States and China.
He invites us to think about how we are truly social animals with community embedded in our nature, and, above all, the degree to which nothing is written – the future is truly in our own hands.₦6,500.00₦6,500.00
When Covid broke out, Wuhan was building science parks to realise Beijing’s ambitions in biotech research. Whoever achieves global leadership of the gene-editing industry stands to harvest great power and wealth. China has already challenged Western technological supremacy with 5G and in other industries. Yet this tiny, invisible virus has cruelly exposed a critical flaw in the Chinese political system: obsessive secrecy. The West wanted to trust the PRC, hoping that, as it prospered, it would become an open society. Made in China reveals how Beijing’s leaders have betrayed that trust.₦10,000.00

How Contagion Works: Science, Awareness and Community in Times of Global Crises – The short essay that helped change the Covid-19 debate
The Covid-19 pandemic is the most significant health emergency of our time.
Writing from Italy in lockdown, physicist and novelist Paolo Giordano explains how disease spreads in our interconnected world:
why it matters
how it impacts us
how we must react
Expanding his focus to include other forms of contagion – from the environmental crisis to fake news and xenophobia – Giordano shows us not just how the coronavirus crisis got so bad so quickly, but also how we can work together to create change.
Paolo Giordano is a physicist and the author of four bestselling novels. His article ‘The Mathematics of Contagion’ – published in Italy at the beginning of the coronavirus emergency – was shared more than 4 million times and helped shift public opinion in the early stages of the epidemic.₦2,500.00
