From the Publisher:

"Penetrating...the book's impact is crushing."--The New York Times
"Required reading for anyone who wants to take measure of the 21st-century realities." --The New York Times Book Review.

From the Inside Flap:

Kennedy's groundbreaking book The Rise and Fall of the Great Powers helped to reorder the current priorities of the United States. Now, he synthesizes extensive research on fields ranging from demography to robotics to draw a detailed, persuasive, and often sobering map of the very near future--a bold work that bridges the gap between history, prophecy, and policy.
