Editorial Reviews

Foreign policy analyst Ralph Buultjens is a perennial favorite at the 92nd Street Y. He speaks on a rotating cast of global superpowers such as China, Russia, and Israel, but always with the caveat that, "Due to the fast-changing nature of global politics, topics may change". He knows what's going on internationally from day to day, and in this 2007 lecture to the premier Jewish cultural institution, he analyzes the state the world was in before the 2008 American presidential election. He is always clear and perceptive in his analyses, making him a leading media commentator and thought-provoking author in the United States and beyond.

Publisher's Summary

The year 2008 may prove to be fateful in global politics, with new leaders elected in America, Russia, and Britain, and likely in Israel and other critical countries. Ralph Buultjens examines the challenges that lie ahead and whether America's position will strengthen or weaken. Buultjens is a leading analyst of world affairs and a professor at New York University and Cambridge University.
