Great Powers: America and the World After Bush Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The author of the groundbreaking New York Times bestseller The Pentagonas New Map brings us a remarkable analysis of the post-Bush world, and Americaas leadership role in it.

In civilian and military circles alike, The Pentagonas New Map became one of the most talked about books of 2004. aA combination of Tom Friedman on globalization and Carl von Clausewitz on war, it is] the red-hot book among the nationas admirals and generals, a wrote David Ignatius in The Washington Post. Barnettas second book, Blueprint for Action, demonstrated how to put the first bookas principles to work. Now, in Great Powers, Barnett delivers his most sweepinga and importantabook of all.

For eight years, the current administration has done much to disconnect or alienate America from the world, but the world has certainly not been standing still. Now, with a chance to start over, what do we do? Whereas the world going now, and how do we not only rejoin it but become a leader again in what has become the most profound reordering of the globe since the end of World War II?

In Great Powers, Barnett offers a tour de force analysis of the grand realignments that are both already here and coming up fast in the spheres of economics, diplomacy, defense, technology, security, the environment, and much more. The agreat powersa are no longer just the worldas major nation-states but the powerful forces, past, present, and future, moving with us and past us like a freight train. It is not a simple matter of a course correction but of a complete recalibration, and the opportunities it presents are far greater than the perils. Barnett gives us a fundamental understanding of both, showing us not only how the world is now but how it will be.

There are those writing now who say America is in decline . . . and we just have to deal with it. Barnett says no. Globalization as it exists today was built by Americaaand now itas time for America to shape and redefine what comes next. Great Powers shows us how. Bibliography. Notes. Index.
