'Provocative and shrewd … a lucid picture of a globalized world that is changing at light speed' Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times
The world is changing, as power shifts from the West … to the rest.
THE GROWTH OF COUNTRIES such as India, China, Brazil, Russia, South Africa and Kenya is generating a new landscape. The tallest buildings, biggest dams, top-selling movies and most advanced mobile phones are now all being made outside Europe and the United States. Countries that previously lacked political confidence and national pride are finding them.
Is this an opportunity, or a threat? Fareed Zakaria's acclaimed bestseller has been heralded as the most thought-provoking book yet on our uncertain times. With lucidity, insight and imagination, he shows how the West must transform its global strategy, moving from being the dominating hegemon to a role that recognizes this seismic power shift. The future we now face is the Post-American World.
