Nice non-US centered take on world politics. Good grasp of core issues, but lacking in quality when looking at up-and-coming powers potential for conflict with each other rather than just the US.

Seriously? Is it too much to ask that people (especially with academic degrees) keeps their argument on a decent level? The "dicktrash" of George W. Bush is just too stupid to read about. Personal attacks is just pathetic.

Original, informative, unbiased and eminently readable insights into a new world order after American hegemony, or, to borrow the author's words "realistic and nuanced, shorn of ideological bias or a soft corner for the United States." It reminds me of ideas and style of prose in "The future of power" by Joseph S. Nye.
Highly recommend for a course in global affairs and for those who are interested in international politics.
