Overview

Farsighted and fascinating predictions for a new world order

Veteran international correspondent Paul Starobin masterfully mixes fresh reportage with rigorous historical analysis to envision a world in which the United States is no longer the domi­nant superpower. Following an insightful study of America’s global ascendency, Starobin provides the reasons for America’s waning influence and explores five possible paths for the future, each of which is already in the making: A global chaos that could be dark or happy; a multipolar order of nation-states; a global Chinese imperium; an age of global city-states; or a universal civilization leading to world government. Starobin’s tone is somber but in the end hopeful-the world after America need not be a disaster for America, and may even be liberating.
