The Post American World by Fareed Zakaria Book PDF Summary
'This is not a book about the decline of America, but rather about the rise of everyone else.' Following the success of his best-selling The Future of Freedom, Fareed Zakaria describes a world in which the United States will no longer dominate the global economy, orchestrate geopolitics, or overwhelm cultures. He sees the 'rise of the rest' - the growth of countries like China, India, Brazil, Russia, and many others - as the great story of our time, and one that will reshape the world. The tallest buildings, biggest dams, largest-selling movies, and most advanced cell phones are all being built outside the United States. This economic growth is producing political confidence, national pride, and potentially international problems. What does it mean to live in a truly global era? Zakaria answers these questions with his customary lucidity, insight, and imagination.
