and s Beckham the new black icon?, Chabal explores why this is the case and how the challenges of the non-West - both in terms of what is happening in regions such as Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East as well as how the non-West is present in our own societies - ought to make us fundamentally re-think how we approach, explain, and attempt to manage our world.  How, ultimately, it should lead to the end of Western conceit.
