One thought on “The Post-American World

  1. Dale

    I ll say at the outset that I like Fareed Zakaria He s articulate, reasonable, moderate, and optimistic And he is the successor to George Kennan and Zbigniew Brzezinski in the role of theorist for US corporate imperialism I will not be surprised if he gets an appointment in the upcoming Obama administration as, for example, Assistant Deputy Director of strategic Analysis for the State Department.Zakaria takes it as an obvious given that the era of US hegemony is drawing to a close The US will be [...]

  2. Eamonn Gormley

    This is the kind of work that makes a body wish President Bush would read books The author s point is that diplomacy is America s strength, and it should be used first with force held as a last resort, especially in a world where the US is not the only superpower any due to the growing influence of countries in the developing world The Rise of the Rest is what Mr Zakaria uses to refer to the economic and political growth in developing countries, principally but not limited to India and China Glo [...]

    This book as been on my reading list for a long time but it was moved to the top a few weeks ago when a distant relation of mine sent one of those hate chain emails with a picture of President Obama holding a copy of the book The message read THIS WILL CURDLE YOUR BLOOD AND CURL YOUR HAIR The name of the book that Obama is reading called The Post American World, and it was written by a fellow Muslim Post America means the World After America Please forward this picture to everyone you know, cons [...]

    I finished this last night and I must say that although it starts off strong I grew very weary Zakaria could have accomplished the same purpose with a feature in a magazine, in 2000 words I m glad I read it, I m working on broadening my perspective, and there is much about the international finance world I never even began to imagine It never hurts to be told something than once just around time eight or ten I grow weary Good stuff, though Time not wasted 1 30 So far I m moving through this sur [...]

    Fareed Zakaria s new book, The Post American World, shines a bright light on the hand wringing and defeatist lies about the state of America that are used by neo conservatives and anti globalist leftists to support their radical positions by infusing Americans with fear Indeed, Mr Zakaria decisively shows that America is the sole ideological superpower in a world that has wholesale adopted our culture and economic values We are now witnessing a global transformation that is the result of the mos [...]

  6. Raghu

    This is an important and optimistic book about America and its future While it is fashionable now to predict gloom about America s future as an economic and political power and over emphasise the rise of China and other powers, Zakaria brings a balance thru his analysis and says that there is no need to push the panic button On the contrary, he shows the many positives about America as well as the world today For example, in spite of the terrorism and violence, he shows that the past 20 years ha [...]

  7. Andrew

    Fareed Zakaria is clearly an effective communicator I saw him speak at my college as a lad of 18 or 19, and he was just as compelling then as in the Post American World He presents an obvious idea that American hegemony is being has been displaced by a global, multipolar power structure and presents it as an effective journalist.And he is as unsophisticated a political thinker as he is a great writer For a scholar who claims to cast aside the old weaponry of ideology and theory, he seems to inv [...]

  8. Rob Haas

    This book is probably the most timely book on world economics and political dynamics that you can find It updates a lot of old statistics and misconceptions all while leaving a really nice taste in your mouth for whats to come I would recommend this book to everyone who wants to know what s behind the goings on in the world Despite the title Zakaria continues to remind the reader that America still plays a vital role in the world and where the United States is able to have the largest impact Zak [...]

  9. Channon

    Thought I d like this than I did Have to admit that it is not my favorite book I m no cheerleader for globalization or US market capitalism but I am even less a fan of attempting to manipulate the world into a homogeneous global market with western values which I felt a strong undercurrent of throughout the book particularly the first half Zakaria asserts that Western economics, religion and culture have been dominant forces for over half a millennium He argues that while the West grew and expa [...]

  10. Ahmed Abdelhamid

    Much of the plot in the book is dedicated for China 1Chapter and India 1Chapter , ignoring the rest Brazil, Japan, a sample was enough okay or the rest coalition no discussion for potential coalition, just a notion at the end to avoid this situation.Reading about the Post American World I could have expected about what is next but the book mostly plots the projections of the past with trails to what is happening now possibly in the rest i.e China and India mainly with no notion of what will com [...]

  11. Tim Weakley

    I am always a little hesitant to read books about current political events because they are so easily partisan I think the author has avoided this trap for the most part with The Post American World He delivers a broad look at what is happening outside of the western sphere of influance that makes me want to learn , specifically about China and India and the political climate of today I don t think this is an anti American work I think it s done with an attitude of enlightenment for the reader I [...]

  12. Honor

    First, as a good faith disclaimer, let me say that I tend to love this kind of book Any book that provides a cup running over with information and data is sure to win my heart early on, and as editor of international editions of Newsweek, Mr Fareed Zakaria certainly has access to the kind of fact feed and data sources that make me go all warm and mushy inside And he shares nicely Second, for those who s sense of patriotism might be goosed by the title, let me offer the explanatory quote from ver [...]

  13. Jafar

    The books starts off with a quote from the historian Arnold Toynbee about how there are no intrinsic reasons why a civilization read an empire should not go on forever, in spite of all the previous ones having failed or faded It immediately reminded me of a similar line about how aging is not one of the laws of physics and the possibility of curing it Zakaria is an editor for Newsweek International, and this book reads like a series of Newsweek articles Sticking to the style of a mainstream and [...]

  14. Tripp

    Fareed Zakaria s new book, the Post American World is a book I hope both presidential candidates read It is a brief book that tells Americans we need to re think our view of the world We need to jettison the idea of the world s policeman and hyperpower and replace it with the world s trusted third party In this his says we need to be less Britain than Bismarck, which I rather like We need to de emphasize military power and re consider economic competitiveness We need to spend less time worrying [...]

  15. Matt

    Hmmmd grrr and meh.I have a lot to say about this book but I don t have the time at the momentHere s The New Republic, pretty much saying what I have to say about the book, if not the other works I ve read columns, interviews, etc Fareed Zakaria is enormously important to an understanding of many things, because he provides a one stop example of conventional thinking about them all He is a barometer in a good suit, a creature of establishment consensus, an exemplary spokesman for the always evol [...]

  17. Satyaki Mitra

    A succinctly written book that clearly reflects the current state of international politics diplomacy Zakaria dissects the various economic, political and ancillary forces at play, that are leading to the rise of other emerging nations China,India,Brazil Africa , while America is still obsessed with it own unilateral view of the world Zakaria provides convincing reasons as to how America can still change it s outlook take the role of a moderator in international politics and, instead of projecti [...]

  18. Dylan

    He defends the book s basic thesis really well, which isn t hard to do He does a great job with his discussion of history s many narratives, and the placing of America s current situation in historical context My problem with the book is how drastically Zakaria overvalues GDP and productivity as the value of a country He never seems to question the construct of world powers, and tends to value countries too much on their global power and too little on how their citizenship is faring As Jonathan [...]

    THE POST AMERICAN WORLD BY FAREED ZAKARIA Fareed Zakaria, author of The Future of Freedom, and editor for Newsweek International, offers up a sobering yet fascinating look at the possible future of the United States and its stake as the global superpower in the first half of the twenty first century The Post American World is part business, part political, part historical, and part sociological as Zakaria analyses how the United States has arrived at the state it is in internationally, and what [...]

  20. George

    Thought I d like this than I did It s not at all about the title s about American globalization and how the USA can succeed in the changing world economy This book came out early in 2008 so it must have been written in 2007 it s dated The book reads like a series of thoughts, not necessarily stuck together In the end, he doesn t say muchjust blather I did not toss it read it to the end But, should have given up after just a few chapters Glad it came from the library and I did not pay for it.

  21. Book

    The Post American World Release 2.0 by Fareed Zakaria The Post American World is the insightful book about world affairs and America s role The author makes compelling arguments that it is the rise of the rest and not America s decline at the heart of this global era This 336 page book is composed of the following seven chapters 1 The Rise of the Rest, 2 The Cup Runneth Over, 3 A Non Western World 4 The Challenger, 5 The Ally, 6 American Power and 7 American Purpose Positives 1 Well written and [...]

    After years of political, economic and cultural dominance of the US, other nations are emerging in what Zakaria calls the rise of the rest It is not, he says that the US is declining it is that the others are growing While he talks of several measures of a country culture, rule of law, institutions the yardstick he clearly favors is its ability to consume.Zakaria speaks of British power at Queen Victoria s 60th Jubilee and how less than 20 years later Europe had a whole new landscape He shows th [...]

  23. Dorothy

    This book came out early in 2008 so it must have been written in 2007 Zakaria doesn t seem to have foreseen the current worldwide economic crisis, but then, of course, a lot of people didn t As a result, some of the early parts of the book where he refers to the booming economy seem a little dated and out of touch, but overall his thesis stands and is well argued in spite of these minor quibbles.He believes that the United States has misplayed its hand in world politics over the last several yea [...]

  24. Mark

    I gave it two stars because I thought Zakaria s book to be so pro globalization that it lacked real credibility Often, his pom pom waving for a political economy which has created the financial disaster we re living through today puts me in mind of Dinesh D Souza s essay Two Cheers for Colonialism I m put in mind of Lenin s term the comprador bourgeoisie In some ways that s unfair to say In some ways, it s dead on accurate It s understandable why he supports globalization it has been beneficial [...]

  25. Terry

    I get the sneaking suspicion a lot of people won t understand the general thesis of this book People might glean from the title that, in the near future, America won t exist This is obviously nonsense.The thesis of the book is that, in the post American world, the rest of the nations throughout the globe will be ABLE to get along without us Trade, development, military operations, and political operations, previously required American intervention, now these things can skirt our borders, or Wash [...]
