"This is not a book about the decline of America, but rather about the rise of everyone else." So begins Fareed Zakaria's important new work on the era we are now entering. Following on the success of his best-selling The Future of Freedom, Zakaria describes with equal prescience a world in which the United States will no longer dominate the global economy, orchestrate geopolitics, or overwhelm cultures. He sees the "rise of the rest" the growth of countries like China, India, Brazil, Russia, and many others as the great story of our time, and one that will reshape the world. The tallest buildings, biggest dams, largest-selling movies, and most advanced cell phones are all being built outside the United States. This economic growth is producing political confidence, national pride, and potentially international problems. How should the United States understand and thrive in this rapidly changing international climate? What does it mean to live in a truly global era? Zakaria answers these questions with his customary lucidity, insight, and imagination.

    感覺比起一些國際媒體的專題分析稿,好像也沒多知道多少。(或者該說原本期待作者的資歷,讓我以為可以再其著作中能多知道些內幕消息的)

    Fareed Zakaria offered his opinion on the economic, political and cultural probabilities. His premises is that America's dominance in economic, military and cultural aspects are challenged by the "challengers", namely, China and India. Instead of worrying about the others,the Americans should look ahead and build on their strengths. Americans still have a superior education system (otherwise, why would the Chinese and Indians study in American universities?); its people are more creative (think Apple Inc. and Microsoft). However, in order for it to succeed in the 'post-american' world, the American must try to change its image in the world stage. It must create a more diplomatic, less arrogant image to curb anti-American sentiment.

    Zakaria's essay is a helpful introduction to the world of international politics in the 21st century for those who are unfamiliar with the topic, but might be skipped by those already learned. Zakaria offers no new insights but casually works his way through possible scenarios of what the world might look like as America's reign comes to an end. His practical knowledge of the situation sometimes comes up short, for instance when he assumes the British political system is indicative of the whole of Europe, which couldn't be further form the truth.

    *** This comment contains spoilers! ***

    有時候看商業趨勢書跟看小說一樣有趣,天花亂墜具說服力的詞藻,一廂情願的論述意識形態與價值觀。〈後美國世界〉描述了中國與印度的崛起,批評了小布希的新保守主義,其實只是傳達後布希時代的主流論述:美國仍然是世界唯一依賴的偉大國家,只是之前被小布希綁架,現在我們要把旗幟(論述權力)搶回來
