Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

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.

In No One's World, Charles A. Kupchan boldly challenges this view, arguing that the world is headed for political and ideological diversity; emerging powers will neither defer to the West's lead nor converge toward the Western way. The ascent of the West was the product of social and economic conditions unique to Europe and the United States. As other regions now rise, they are following their own paths to modernity and embracing their own conceptions of domestic and international order.

Kupchan contends that the Western order will not be displaced by a new great power or dominant political model. The twenty-first century will not belong to America, China, Asia, or anyone else. It will be no one's world. For the first time in history, an interdependent world will be without a center of gravity or global guardian.

More than simply diagnosing what lies ahead, Kupchan provides a detailed strategy for striking a bargain between the West and the rising rest by fashioning a new consensus on issues of legitimacy, sovereignty, and governance. Thoughtful, provocative, sweeping in scope, this work is nothing less than a global guidebook for the 21st century.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent book, scholarly but not didactic 13 août 2016
Par GrouchyOldman - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
The test of a book like this is how well its predictions stack up against later experience. By this measure, the author is prescient. He is clearly very knowledgeable. He presents historical information as a predicate for what was occurring when he wrote, which lends perspective to what is occurring now, six years later. He betrays no ideological bias. He writes well. the book is a pleasure to read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Future Knocks on the Door 11 avril 2012
Par H. Peter Nennhaus - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This treatise casts a view into the world's future and reveals a surprising number of troubling challenges. Beginning within the next two decades, a tectonic power shift from the West to several other countries is about to transpire with China being the most prominent beneficiary. The operating mechanism is twofold: on one hand there is the recent decline of the economic, financial and political performance of Europe and America and, on the other, the rapid catch-up of the BRICS countries - Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. This stark realization gives rise to a sobering soul searching as to the West's liabilities and failures, their origin, nature, and prognosis. In a clinically stringent survey, Charles Kupchan lists the tasks we must accomplish, if we want the transition to be an orderly, peaceful and beneficial process instead of permitting the family of nations to get disrupted in an anarchic, jealous, and destructive confrontation.

Among his almost 20 conclusions, here are four of them: 1. As the title of the book indicates, our present single superpower system will enter into a multi-power world lacking a solitary leader. 2. Each of the rising geographic regions will pursue its own way of modernization as determined by their cultural traditions. Few if any of them will adhere to liberal democracy and rather follow their accustomed autocracy systems. Thus, China will cling to its communal autocracy, Russia to its paternal autocracy, the Muslem region to its religious and tribal autocracy, and so on. 3. America will have to retrench its global ambitions to a formula commensurate with is diminishing means. 4. Among the globally acceptable fundamental principles that are to rule the future, the West must agree to the redefinition of regime legitimacy. That is to say, we must extend the concept of legitimacy to those regimes that govern responsibly, be they democratic or autocratic.

This is an eye opening exploration. It is mandatory reading for anyone among the world's leaders. In fact, for those who believe that human civilization has arrived at the point where mankind is ready to unite under global law and a global system of security, here indeed is a wealth of facts that support this concept and urges its implementation.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 which brand of capitalism is changing the world? 31 décembre 2012
Par Koo Tat Kee - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
It is undoubtful that the world is heading towards multipolarity as described by Kupchan. His arguments and conclusions are cogent. Political diversity is the fact of life. However, I do not agree with Kupchan that state capitalism as practised by the autocrats is superior to the market capitalism in terms of its ability to deliver well-beings to their citizens. In the long run, economic development depends much on the wisdom and efforts of the private entrepreneurs. Meanwhile, if the autocratic regimes become too predatory, their economies may stop to grow. By that time, the international order is about to take another turn.
