Overview

Post-Cold War, the world remains unipolar, but international competition among the United States, Russia, China, Europe, Japan, India, and Iran raise new threats of regional conflict. Communism is dead, but a new contest between western liberalism and the great eastern autocracies of Russia and China has reinjected ideology into geopolitics. Radical Islamists are waging a violent struggle against the modern secular cultures and powers that, in their view, have dominated, penetrated, and polluted their Islamic world. The grand expectation that the world would enter an era of international geopolitical convergence has proven wrong. Kagan poses the most important questions facing the liberal democratic countries, challenging them to choose whether they want to shape history or let others shape it for them.

Reviews

Holter Graham narrates with authority but without artifice or too much gravitas, which would be all too easy. He varies his cadence to emphasize points and to allow the listener to catch up with the concepts. -- AudioFile [A] stirring treatise on post-Cold War politics...Kagan's well-considered message will resonate with history buffs and current-affairs junkies looking for the latest in neocon thought. -- Publishers Weekly Intensely interesting and lucid...Written with exemplary clarity and profound good sense, it reads like a briefing paper for the next president of the United States, and as such it is indispensable reading-not just for McCain or Obama but for everyone interested in the uncertain and fragile near future of the world. -- Barnes & Noble, editorial review A brief and wonderfully argued volume...that has a message for Americans of all political stripes. -- New York Times Book Review
