After the Virus: The Rebirth of a Multipolar World


SKU: AfterVirus


By Boris Nad

Translated and Edited with a Foreword by Jafe Arnold

360 pages / Released August 2022 / Available in hardcover, paperback, and ebook.


All the signs are here: the modern Western world order dominated by the United States of America will not survive the 21st century. The “End of History” proclaimed after the Cold War has proven to be a dangerous illusion, leaving many unprepared for the crises, conflicts, and seismic shifts already upon us and those still to come. With a dual sense of urgency and calm, Boris Nad’s After the Virus: The Rebirth of a Multipolar World invites readers to catharsis, to recognize that there is not one, but many civilizations, and that the horizons of the future are both open-ended and deeply rooted in different pasts and presents. In this penetrating symphony of essays, Nad challenges us to see that we live in the end of an era, the end of a world, but only one, and that the most turbulent events, figures, and contrasts of our times are episodes in a much older and larger picture of the rise and fall of civilizations and ideas. After the Virus is essential reading for keeping one’s fingers on the pulses of continents and deciphering the dizzying panorama of contemporary geopolitics.
