Where does freedom come from and where is it taking us? Is it truly an absence of constraint and therefore an enemy of authority? Alan T. Wood offers a new interpretation of freedom and authority that sees their relationship as complementary and not adversarial. His macroscopic view draws on the historical perspective of humankind’s shared experiences throughout the world. This book responds to the need to educate our children for responsible and compassionate global citizenship. It further provides a unifying theme for world history and outlines the basis for a new understanding of national sovereignty that could enhance cooperation among the countries of the world.

«Fascination with Alan Wood’s manuscript scuttled my plans for a Saturday morning. In elegant, captivating prose, he advanced his central thesis throughout all the major themes of the human conversation. By the time I finished, I knew what should be at the very core of everyone’s education.» (John I. Goodlad, President, Institute for Education Inquiry, Seattle, Washington)
