Understanding The Past

Need to understand the past to be able to influence the present & future, ie trends. In reviewing Henry Kissinger's book, World Order, (Penguin Press) Hillary Clinton states

"...his knack of connecting headlines to trend lines - very long trend lines in this case......he traces the Indian view of order back to the Hindu epics; the Moslem view the campaigns of Muhammad; the European view to the carnage of the 30 Year War...... The Russian view to the hard school of steppe, where an array of nomadic tribes contended for resources on an open terrain with very few fixed borders......Asia......all of the region's rising powers, China included, had their own visions of regional and global order, shaped by their own histories and present situation..."

Hillary Clinton, 2014
