Summary "The turn of the century has seen the United States greatly enhance its military supremacy across the world. The US has also played a key role in shaping the international economic order. More recently, however, its world-wide economic domination has started to diminish as other regions and countries - including Europe and China - have become globally important players. Simon Bromley brings a fresh perspective to these issues, arguing that it is as yet unclear whether the US will be capable of rising to the challenges posed by the new world order"--BOOK JACKET
