Many complain about the state of the world today, but few propose solutions that match the scope of the problems we face. In this highly readable book, John Bodley shows how breaking up today's mega-nations (U.S., Russia, Japan, China, India, Indonesia, Pakistan, etc.) into small nations (fewer than ten million people) would create the conditions in which true democracy, social equity, and peace could thrive. Big nations have historically bred extremes of inequality, elitism, violence, and internal instability. Drawing on his own anthropological fieldwork as well as many historical examples, Bodley explains why restoring nations to a more manageable scale could circumvent the problems of giantism and create healthy societies in which benefits are widely distributed. Standing in the tradition of Fritz Schumacher's Small Is Beautiful, Herman Daly's concept of ‘optimal size,’ and Leopold Kohr's principle of confederacies among small nations, this book draws all of the strands together into a new synthesis that points the way forward to a more hopeful future.
