Summary
From the medieval era to modernity, Rifkin delves into the history of Europe, and then America, to show how Europe has steadily been developing a more adaptive, sensible way of working and living. Rifkin posits a dawning truth that only the most jingoistic can ignore: Europe's flexible, communitarian model of society, business, and citizenship is better suited to the challenges of the 21st century. Indeed, the European Dream may come to define the new century as the American Dream defined the century now past.
