Zakaria's analysis of the challenges of the modern world and changing international relations are excellent, well-researched and moderate with an emphasis on practicality. His arguments are always rooted in historical fact and are unbeholden to any singular philosophy. I have a degree in International Relations and Global Business and find that this book is an excellent summary of the global trends that many Americans are losing sleep about.
He provides recommendations for American policy to avoid going the path of the British at the turn of the last century. A must-read for anybody with an interest in American politics, economics or foreign policy.
Finally we have an accurate, well-researched, and intellectually honest description of America's predicament and our best course of action moving into the new century of the "Rise of the Rest."
