Shape of the World to Come

Globalization is certainly the most powerful force facing the political world today. Many interpret this movement as an equalization of people and nations across the globe. This author, however, cautions that the current globalization trend still has roots in longstanding regional geopolitics. Rather than Europe or the United States playing the role as world leader, he sees China and India emerging as economic powerhouses and technological leaders. This book offers a new analytical framework in which to consider the globalization phenomenon, one in which multipolar dominance may replace a single world leader.
