Summary
This global tour of the 21st century world shows how America's dominance has been suddenly replaced by a geopolitical marketplace wherein the European Union and China compete with the United States to shape world order. This contest is hottest in the Second World: pivotal regions in Eastern Europe, Central Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, and East Asia. International affairs expert Khanna explores the evolution of geopolitics through such underreported, fascinating, and complicated countries as Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, Colombia, Libya, Vietnam, and Malaysia--nations whose resources will ultimately determine the fate of the three superpowers, but whose futures are perennially uncertain. Along the way, Khanna also explains how Arabism and Islamism compete for the Arab soul, reveals how Iran and Saudi Arabia play the superpowers against one another, unmasks Singapore's inspirational role in East Asia, and psychoanalyzes the Second-World leaders whose decisions are reshaping the balance of power.--From publisher description
