Refuting the conventional wisdom that the end of the Cold War cleared the way for an era of peace and prosperity led solely by the United States, Charles A. Kupchan contends that the next challenge to America's might is fast emerging. It comes not from the Islamic world or an ascendant China, but from an integrating Europe that is rising as a counterweight to the United States. Decades of strategic partnership across the Atlantic are giving way to renewed geopolitical competition. The waning of U.S. primacy will be expedited by America's own ambivalence about remaining the globe's guardian and by the impact of the digital age on the country's politics and its role in the world.
By deftly mining the lessons of history to cast light on the present and future, Kupchan explains how America and the world should prepare for the more complex, more unstable road ahead.

Kupchan maps out an original and persuasive vision of where America and the world are headed. The time to read this book is now." -James Chace, author of Acheson: The Secretary of State Who Created the American World "With his expansive knowledge of history, Kupchan places contemporary trends in perspective. . . . Offers revealing insights into contemporary policy matters with a spectacular eye for detail." - The Christian Science Monitor "Elegantly explores the benefits and dangers of U.S. primacy and the system of globalization that has come with it.

Well worth reading." -George Soros "An important and provocative reassessment of American power and foreign policy."-Lee H. Hamilton, Director, Woodrow Wilson International Center "This original and informative work challenges our conventional wisdom and offers useful strategic guidance. Agree with it or not, Kupchan will make you think and reexamine your assumptions as you enjoy the clarity of his writing and thought."-Anthony Lake, National Security Advisor in the first Clinton administration "Provocatively embedding his argument in examinations of historical power shifts . . .

As controversial as it is insightful." -Ronald Steel, author of Walter Lippmann and the American Century "An ambitious enterprise . . .
