pages hardcover with unclipped dust jacket study of international relations by Zbigniew Brzezinski who currently advises President Obama, Wspomnienia Doradcy do Spraw Bezpiecze stwa Pa stwa, As the twentieth century draws to a close the United States has emerged as the world s only superpower no other nation possesses comparable military and economic power or has interests that bestride the globe Yet the critical question facing America remains unanswered What should be the nation s global strategy for maintaining its exceptional position in the world Zbigniew Brzezinski tackles this question head on in this incisive and pathbreaking book i The Grand Chessboard i presents Brzezinski s bold and provocative geostrategic vision for American preeminence in the twenty first century Central to his analysis is the exercise of power on the Eurasian landmass which is home to the greatest part of the globe s population natural resources and economic activity Stretching from Portugal to the Bering Strait from Lapland to Malaysia Eurasia is the grand chessboard on which America s supremacy will be ratified and challenged in the years to come The task facing the United States he argues is to manage the conflicts and relationships in Europe Asia and the Middle East so that no rival superpower arises to threaten our interests or our well being The heart of i The Grand Chessboard i is Brzezinski s analysis of the four critical regions of Eurasia and of the stakes for America in each arena Europe Russia Central Asia and East Asia The crucial fault lines may seem familiar but the implosion of the Soviet Union has created new rivalries and new relationships and Brzezinski maps out the strategic ramifications of the new geopolitical realities He explains for example Why France and Germany will play pivotal geostrategic roles whereas Britain and Japan will not Why NATO expansion offers Russia the chance to undo the mistakes of the past and why Russia cannot afford to toss this opportunity aside Why the fate of Ukraine and Azerbaijan are so important to America Why viewing China as a menace is likely to become a self fulfilling prophecy Why America is not only the first truly global superpower but also the last and what the implications are for America s legacy Brzezinski s surprising and original conclusions often turn conventional wisdom on its head as he lays the groundwork for a new and compelling vision of America s vital interests Once again Zbigniew Brzezinski provides our nation with a philosophical and practical guide for maintaining and managing our hard won global power, By following the disintegration first of the Soviet bloc and then of the Soviet Union itself the United States was left standing tall as the only global super power Not only the th but even the st century seemed destined to be the American centuries But that super optimism did not last long During the last decade of the th century and the first decade of the st century the stock market bubble and the costly foreign unilateralism of the younger Bush presidency as well as the financial catastrophe of jolted America and much of the West into a sudden recognition of its systemic vulnerability to unregulated greed Moreover the East was demonstrating a surprising capacity for economic growth and technological innovation That prompted new anxiety about the future including even about America s status as the leading world power This book is a response to a challenge It argues that without an America that is economically vital socially appealing responsibly powerful and capable of sustaining an intelligent foreign engagement the geopolitical prospects for the West could become increasingly grave The ongoing changes in the distribution of global power and mounting global strife make it all the more essential that America does not retreat into an ignorant garrison state mentality or wallow in cultural hedonism but rather becomes more strategically deliberate and historically enlightened in its global engagement with the new East This book seeks to answer four major questions What are the implications of the changing distribution of global power from West to East and how is it being affected by the new reality of a politically awakened humanity b br b b b Why is America s global appeal waning how ominous are the symptoms of America s domestic and international decline and how did America waste the unique global opportunity offered by the peaceful end of the Cold War br What would be the likely geopolitical consequences if America did decline by and could China then assume America s central role in world affairs br What ought to be a resurgent America s major long term geopolitical goals in order to shape a more vital and larger West and to engage cooperatively the emerging and dynamic new East br br b b America Brzezinski argues must define and pursue a comprehensive and long term a geopolitical vision a vision that is responsive to the challenges of the changing historical context This book seeks to provide the strategic blueprint for that vision
