Publisher Comments:

A Prophetic Assessment of America's Changing Place in an Increasingly Global Age

For Fareed Zakaria, the great story of our times is not the decline of America but rather the rise of everyone else — 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. It's also producing political confidence and national pride. 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.

With his customary lucidity, insight, and imagination, Zakaria 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 must begin a serious transformation of global strategy and seek to share power, create coalitions, build legitimacy, and define the global agenda. None of this will be easy for the greatest power the world has ever known — the only power that for so long has really mattered. But all that is changing now. The future we face is the post-American world.

Synopsis:

Fareed Zakaria, editor of Newsweek International, has become one of the countrys most trusted commentators on global politics.  Following on the success of his bestselling The Future of Freedom, Zakaria describes with equal prescience a world in which the United States will no longer dominate the worlds economy, politics, or culture.

Zakaria sees the “rise of the rest”the growth of countries like China, India, Brazil, and Russiaas the great story of our time.  These days, the tallest buildings, biggest dams, highest-grossing movies, and most advanced cell phones are all being created outside the United States. This economic growth is producing political confidence, national pride, and new kinds of international conflict.  But what exactly does it mean to live in this truly global era?  And under these conditions, what strategies can the U.S. use to adapt and thrive?  Zakaria answers these questions and more with his customary lucidity, insight, and imagination.
