from the manufacturer

Moving beyond Fareed Zakarias bestselling The Post-American World, 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. The American Century has passed, argues Starobin, due in large part to Americas military overreach in the Middle East; resurgent nationalism and economic expansion in Russia, China, and India; the tarnished American model of unfettered free-market capitalism; and the growth of transnational cultural, political, and economic institutions. Following an insightful analysis of Americas global ascendancy, Starobin explores five possible scenarios for the future: an age of chaos like the one following the collapse of the Roman Empire; a multipolar order of nations in which America would be one great power among others; China becoming the dominant superpower; an age of global city-states; or a form of world government. A concluding section of the book explores how Californiathe eighth largest economy in the world and demographically and technologically among the most sophisticated spots on the planetis already starting to move beyond the American Century. Thought-provoking and well argued, After America serves as an urgent catalyst to discussing Americas evolving role in a dramatically changing world. Starobins tone is sober but in the end hopefulthe world after America need not be a disaster for America, and it might even be liberating.
