From the Publisher:
?This is not a book about the decline of America, but rather about the rise of everyone else.? So begins Fareed Zakaria's blockbusting bestseller on the United States in the twenty-first century. How can Americans understand this rapidly changing international climate, and how might the nation continue to thrive in a truly global era? Zakaria answers these questions with his customary lucidity, insight, and imagination.

Annotation:
Noted commentator Fareed Zakaria issues a major statement about the a new world order, in which the United States plays a leading role, but not the dominating role that many American have been used to. Global growth has brought robust economic activity around the world, and he notes the rise of India, China, and other countries. Zakaria tells how and why this happened and where it can lead, taking the time to provide enough historical background to explain current events. Writing from his own perspective, and drawing on his experiences, Zakaria remains an enthusiastic booster of the American way, and is sanguine about the ability of America to adapt to a changing world. Selected by the New York Times Book Review as a Notable Book of 2008.
Author Bio
Fareed Zakaria
Born in India into a professional family--his father was an author/politician and his mother edited a newspaper--Fareed Zakaria grew up to become the editor of Newsweek International. He became better known as one of the talking heads on Sunday morning programs such as This Week with George Stephanopoulos, as well as for many appearances on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Zakaria was educated at Yale and Harvard universities. He worked at the distinguished journal Foreign Affairs and is known for the cover article "The Politics of Rage: Why Do They Hate Us?" written for Newsweek after the 9/11 attacks. ||Zakaria's book THE FUTURE OF FREEDOM (2003) is a highly regarded analysis of democracy and the conditions under which it can be viable. THE POST-AMERICAN WORLD (2008) is a projection as well as a prescription for how America can regain its lost status following the departure of the George W. Bush administration. Zakaria's political journey is interesting to many, and unknown to some. He was a neoconservative who became a centrist; and he has criticized both the Arab world for failing to accept modernity, as well as of President George W. Bush for the post-invasion missteps in Iraq. He is pro-globalization, a secular Muslim, and has steadfastly resisted the celebrity status that his many television appearances might have brought him.

Praise

"A sharp, well-written work of political economy." 03/01/2008

"[A] stimulating, largely optimistic forecast of where the 21st century is heading....A lucid, thought-provoking appraisal of world affairs...." 02/25/2008

"Zakaria...is judicious, reasonable, smooth, intelligent, and a little glib...." - Ian Buruma 04/21/2008

"...Mr. Zakaria uses his wide-ranging fluency in economics, foreign policy and cultural politics to give the lay reader a lucid picture of a globalized world (and America's role in it) that is changing at light speed, even as he provides a host of historical analogies to examine the possible fallout of these changes....[A] provocative and often shrewd take that opens a big picture window on the closing of the first American century and the advent of a new world in which 'the rest rise, and the West wanes.'" - Michiko Kakutani 05/06/2008

"This is a relentlessly intelligent book that eschews simple-minded projections from crisis to collapse." - Josef Joffe 05/11/2008
