Product Details



“Thomas Homer-Dixon cuts through the doom and offers a path to hope with new book.” —Calgary Herald

“Brilliantly structured and utterly absorbing from beginning to end, Commanding Hope addresses with honesty and courage the dangers we face and offers us practical ways to prepare for the hard work ahead.” —Quill & Quire

“It is a rare thing to hold a book in your hands and think, ‘This could be a game changer.’ I had that experience at several ‘Aha!’ moments while reading Thomas Homer-Dixon’s latest, Commanding Hope. . . . Homer-Dixon has never shied away from the big questions. His previous books—The Ingenuity Gap and The Upside of Down were both bestsellers, hailed for iconoclastic analysis of sweeping and complex issues. Even so, Commanding Hope is more ambitious. . . . For those crafting political strategies, it is dynamite. . . . Read this book and take on your part—wielding hope like a weapon in the fight for survival.” —Elizabeth May, Policy Magazine


“One of the best-informed and most brilliant writers on global affairs today.” —The Guardian

“Thomas Homer-Dixon is a public intellectual who is ready to get his hands dirty.” —The Walrus

“Homer-Dixon repeatedly reminds the reader that the future is never truly written. There are more creative and human-scale paths open to us, if we can work against our society’s deeply entrenched denial mechanisms and start to work together for positive change.” —The Toronto Star

“Homer-Dixon is one of Canada’s most talked about and controversial scholars.” —Maclean’s

“For over a decade, Thomas Homer-Dixon has provided that rare thing: a bridge between leading-edge research and the lay reader. . . . [A]ddressing the greatest problems of our time, he points us towards a path forward.” —Robert D. Kaplan, author of Imperial Grunts and Balkan Ghosts
