The world is on the cusp of a global turn. Between 1500 and 1800, the West sprinted ahead of other centers of power in Asia and the Middle East. Europe and the United States have dominated the world since. But today the West's preeminence is slipping away as China, India, Brazil and other emerging powers rise. Although most strategists recognize that the dominance of the West is on the wane, they are confident that its founding ideas democracy, capitalism, and secular nationalism will continue to spread, ensuring that the Western order will outlast its primacy.

This book, like that of Paul Gilding, The Great Disruption, deals with the disaster toward which our civilization seems to be headed, and its possible aftermath. Unlike Paul Gilding, Professor Kupchin does not foresee a world dominated by one or more great powers. Rather, he predicts multiple centers of power – it will be no one’s world -- requiring major changes in international relationships and diplomacy. This is not an easy read, but it is well written and I, for one, am going to reread it soon. It deserves serious consideration by everyone concerned about our future
