Why the English-Speaking Nations Will Lead the Way
James C. Bennett

Despite repeated predictions of the demise of America and the English-speaking nations as the world's predominant culture, author James C. Bennett believes this gap will widen in the coming decades. Coining the term anglosphere to describe a loose coalition based on a common language and heritage, Bennett believes that traits common to these countries—a particularly strong and independent civil society; openness and receptivity to the world, its people and ideas; and a dynamic economy—have uniquely positioned them to prosper in a time of dramatic technological and scientific change. In a wide-ranging exploration back to the Industrial Revolution and into the future, The Anglosphere Challenge (Roman & Littlefield 2004) gives voice to a growing movement on both sides of the Atlantic.
