The Post-American World
The New York Times Bestseller
“Zakaria . . . may have more intellectual range and insights than any other public thinker in the West.” —Boston Sunday Globe
“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.
