Ian Bremmer argues that Washington's directionless foreign policy has become prohibitively expensive and increasingly dangerous. Since the end of the Cold War, US policymakers have stumbled from crisis to crisis in Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Syria, and Ukraine without a clear strategy. Ordinary Americans too often base their foreign policy choices on allegiance or opposition to the party in power.

Geopolitical thought leader Ian Bremmer issues a clarion call to America: redefine your place in the world, or the world will define it for you. America's identity abroad has long been defined by the Second World War and years of Cold War struggle. But the new America has changed; its role and identity are in flux - and with them the global balance of power. In Superpower, president and founder of the Eurasia Group Ian Bremmer calls for a completely new definition of America as a superpower - one that adheres to distinct priorities and values.
