Description - Superpower by Ian Bremmer
America will remain the world's only superpower for the foreseeable future. What role should it play in the world? Bestselling author and strategist Ian Bremmer argues that Washington's directionless foreign policy has become expensive and dangerous. Since the end of the Cold War, the US has stumbled from crisis to crisis in Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Syria and Ukraine with no clear strategy. In Superpower, Bremmer urges us to think more deeply about what sort of country America should play and how it should use its superpower status. He explores three competing options for US foreign policy- Independent America- America should no longer take responsibility for solving other people's problems. Instead, Americans should lead by example. Moneyball America- Washington can't meet every international challenge. The priorities must be to focus on opportunities and to defend US interests where they're threatened. Indispensable America- Only America can defend the values on which global stability increasingly depends. We will never live in a stable world while others are denied their most basic free-doms. As the 2016 presidential election approaches, America can no longer afford to be complacent about its role in the world. It's time to make a choice. 'A must-read for all those concerned with the twenty-first-century geopolitical landscape.' Christine Lagarde, managing director of the International Monetary Fund
