In this international bestseller, Fareed Zakaria describes "the rise of the rest"-the political and economic ascendance of countries such as China, India, Brazil, Russia, South Africa, and Kenya. With his customary lucidity, insight, and imagination, Zakaria outlines the contemporary diffusion of power, drawing on lessons of history to help the United States face the challenges-and opportunities-of the post-American world.

Review quote

"Prophetic brilliance, near-perfect clarity, and a stirring resonance." -- Philadelphia Inquirer "Fareed Zakaria is one of the most thoughtful foreign policy analysts of our day and his new book . . . is a must read for anyone interested in globalization-or the Presidential election." -- Bruce Nussbaum - BusinessWeek "This is a relentlessly intelligent book that eschews simple-minded projections from crisis to collapse... to remind this faltering giant of its unique and enduring strength." -- Joseph Joffe - New York Times Book Review "A provocative and often shrewd take that opens a big picture window on the closing of the first American century and the advent of a new world." -- Michiko Kakutani - New York Times
