Read full description of the books The Post-American World:“Zakaria . . . may have more intellectual range and insights than any other public thinker in the West.” —Boston Sunday Globe
For Fareed Zakaria, the great story of our times is "the rise of the rest" - the growth of countries such as China, India, Brazil, Russia, South Africa, Kenya, and many, many more. This economic growth is generating a new global landscape where power is shifting and wealth and innovation are bubbling up in unexpected places. As these trends continue, the push of globalization will increasingly be joined by the pull of nationalism - a tension that is likely to define the next decades. Global growth produces many good things but also many problems - and the world is not yet equipped to tackle them." Zakaria outlines the contemporary diffusion of power throughout the world. He draws on lessons from the two great power shifts of the past five hundred years - the rise of the Western world and the rise of the United States - to tell us what we can expect from the third shift, the "rise of the rest." Washington needs to begin a serious transformation of its global strategy, moving from being the dominating hegemon to a role that is more like an honest broker. It must seek to share power, create coalitions, build legitimacy, and define the global agenda - all formidable tasks. None of this will be easy for the greatest power the world has ever known - the only power that has really mattered for so long. But as we learn in this new book, all that is changing now. The future we face is the post-American world.
