Rated 0

Prose: non-fiction, Politics & government

A counterintuitive look at why America will remain a superpower for the next fifty years.

In the bestselling tradition of The World Is Flat and The Next 100 Years comes a contrarian and eye-opening assessment of American power.

Combined, these factors are overturning the global system and ushering in a new (dis)order. For most, that is a disaster-in-waiting, but not for the Americans.

Geography will matter more than ever in a de-globalizing world, and America's geography is simply sublime.
