Product description

A fascinating, eye-opening and often shocking look at what lies ahead for the U.S. and the world from one of our most incisive futurists. In his thought-provoking new book, George Friedman, founder of STRATFOR--the preeminent private intelligence and forecasting firm--focuses on what he knows best, the future. Positing that civilization is at the dawn of a new era, he offers a lucid, highly readable forecast of the changes we can expect around the world during the twenty-first century all based on his own thorough analysis and research. For example, The U.S.-Jihadist war will be replaced by a new cold war with Russia; China's role as a world power will diminish; Mexico will become an important force on the geopolitical stage; and new technologies and cultural trends will radically alter the way we live (and fight wars). Riveting reading from first to last, "The Next 100 Years" is a fascinating exploration of what the future holds for all of us.

Review quote

“Expect the unexpected. . . . He can see without the crystal ball.”—"Newsweek" “"Barron’s" consistently has found Stratfor’s insights informative and largely on the money—as has the company’s large client base, which ranges from corporations to media outlets and government agencies.”—"Barron’s" “There is a temptation, when you are around George Friedman, to treat him like a Magic 8-Ball.”"—New York Times Magazine " "Predictions have made George Friedman a hot property these days." —"The Wall Street Journal"
