Default Re: How to Run the World (Robert Wright & Parag Khanna)

I don't understand his argument that the 21st century resembles the Middle Ages more than the Concert of Europe. He criticises the 19th century for being Eurocentric (despite the Middle Ages being a term that only applies to European history), but his checklist of non-state actors in the Middle Ages (Catholic Church, universities, guilds, city states etc.) were entirely European!
