520    This book discusses contemporary constellations of 
       international politics and global transformation. It 
       offers guidance on how to conceptualize the complexity of 
       current global changes and practical policy advice in 
       order to promote an open global society. In the light of 
       today's challenges, the author re-interprets the main 
       argument of the philosopher Karl Popper in "The Open 
       Society and Its Enemies". Based on this framework and new 
       empirical evidence, the book discusses the thesis of an 
       ongoing Third World War, triggered by fundamental deficits
       in nation-building, occurring primarily within states and 
       not between them, and accelerated by asymmetric forms of 
       warfare and Islamist totalitarianism. The book also 
       explores various threats to the global order, such as the 
       paradox of borders as barriers and bridges, the global 
       effects of the youth bubble in many developing countries, 
       and the misuse of religious interpretation for the use of 
       political violence. Lastly, the author identifies 
       advocates and supporters of a liberal, multilateral and 
       open order and argues for a reinvention of the Western 
       world to contribute to a revival of a liberal global order,
       based on mutual respect and joint leadership.
