Examines what would happen if the United States no longer held a position of global leadership.
From the Publisher:
Robert Kagan, the "New York Times" bestselling author of "Of Paradise and Power" and one of the country's most influential strategic thinkers, reaffirms the importance of United States's global leadership in this timely and important book.
Upon its initial publication, "The World America Made" became one of the most talked about political books of the year, influencing Barack Obama's 2012 State of the Union address and shaping the thought of both the Obama and Romney presidential campaigns. In these incisive and engaging pages, Kagan responds to those who anticipate--or even long for--a post-American world order by showing what a decline in America's influence would truly mean for the United States and the rest of the world, as the vital institutions, economies, and ideals currently supported by American power wane or disappear. As Kagan notes, it has happened before: one need only to consider the consequences of the breakdown of the Roman Empire and the collapse of the European order in World War I. This book is a powerful warning that America need not and dare not decline by committing preemptive superpower suicide.
