9780141027784: The Second World: Empires and Influence in the New Global Order: How Emerging Powers Are Redefining Global Competition in the Twenty-first Century

At the end of the Cold War, we found ourselves living in a world with one superpower, the United States. Now, at the start of the twenty-first century, Parag Khanna argues powerfully that the moment of American supremacy is over, brought about by the increasing influence of what he terms the Second World: Eastern Europe, Central Asia, South America, the Middle East and East Asia. Travelling from Azerbaijan to Venezuela, China's hinterlands to Gaddafi's Libya, Parag Khanna explores these countries and their global significance. For as the three superpowers - the US, the EU and China - compete for influence in the Second World, citizens of these countries can already feel the these imperial forces exerting their influence and affecting the global balance of power. In a bold and provocative style, The Second World makes clear what's at stake, for whoever dominates the Second World will lead the twenty-first century - or become a part of the Second World itself.

Review:

'Fascinating... elegantly combining historical analysis, political theory and eye-witness reports on the battle for primacy between the world's new empires' Mark Leonard, author of 'Why Europe will run the 21st Century' 'The Second World takes us to a whole series of important places ... and gives us glimpses of life on that messy borderland between the second world and first ... [a] great feat of reportage' - Niall Ferguson, The FT 'This is the sort of reporting that newspapers can no longer afford to send correspondents to do ... [Khanna's] book is compelling and exciting' The Telegraph

Review:

'Khanna's style is gripping ... [he] makes a compelling argument, leaving the reader ultimately convinced by [his] assertion that the time of US supremacy could be drawing to a close'
