        Fareed Zakaria

        ISBN 9780141038056

      1. Zakaria, an influential American commentator and editor of Newsweek, discusses the decline of US hegemony as a largely positive product of ‘the rise of the rest’ (especially China and India), and offers a fairy rosy and at times questionable view of the state of the world (he argues, for example, that global violence peaked in 1990 but is now at record lows). Zakaria suggests that as long as America can regain some of the moral authority it lost during the Bush years, it will continue to prosper and exercise considerable power and influence on the world stage. See in particular ‘The Rise of the Rest’ and ‘A Non-Western World?.’
