The book analyses various dimensions of the multiple crises facing humanity today. It probes the underlying causes of these crises and offers solutions rooted in a spiritual-moral ethos.
The lead embodies the central message of the book. Humankind is confronted by multiple crises linked to the environment and the economy, to politics and militarism. The quest for global hegemony; the bias towards the powerful and the wealthy in most societies; the failure of elites in particular to adhere to moral values and principles; and the prevailing materialistic worldview, are among the principal causes.
