Reviews

'An extremely challenging and thoughtful analysis of the most important problems of global governance.' Jacques Attali, First President of EBRD, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development

'Y?lmaz Argüden has focused on two very important aspects of governance which haven't gotten enough emphasis in my opinion: the need for trust and the need to build a culture of governance to improve sustainability of organizations. This book brings both issues to the fore and is a very good move in the right direction.' Frank Brown, Dean, INSEAD

'A must read for all those who believe that Government, Business and Civil Society need to work closer together for a sustainable planet and a better tomorrow. In his book Dr. Y?lmaz Argüden provides holistic solutions to complex issues.' Muhtar Kent, Chairman and CEO, The Coca-Cola Company

'This is a marvelous book written by a well known and widely respected modern day renaissance leader and thinker. What Y?lmaz Argüden has to say in this work is deeply rooted in a lifetime of remarkable experiences. On page after page one encounters

important insights. This book is a tour de force of a kind that comes along only rarely. In these particularly difficult transition years we have here an oasis of calmly, thoughtfully, and carefully explained wisdom and suggestions about how to think and act. A must read.' John H. McArthur, Dean Emeritus, Harvard Business School

'Whether a nation-state, or the world as a whole, benefits from globalization is above all a matter of good governance. Y?lmaz Argüden investigates in this book thoroughly what this means for the actors in the world, for the political and economic élites. Y?lmaz Argüden outlines the keys to good governance and sustainable development. It is a pleasure to read this book.' Gerhard Schröder, Former Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany (1998 2005)

'Any leader faces the challenges of establishing and maintaining trust among those whom he or she must lead. In this book, Y?lmaz Argüden explains how this task has changed in the modern world. He provides leaders in government, non-profits, and corporations with ideas for how to take their leadership into the 21st century.' Jim Thomson, President/CEO, RAND Corporation

'I commend Y?lmaz Argüden for taking on the challenge to write this book, which provides new insights into how the global community can be a better place economically, socially, politically, and culturally through a detailed examination of good governance.' Muhammad Yunus, Nobel Laureate, Social Entrepreneur, and Founder of Grameen Bank
