The title is misleading. It states that there will be a post-American world. But throughout the book the author talks about how resilient the United States has been in terms of attracting talented people, having the best higher education, having a consistent GPD over a long period of time, etc. He concludes that the U.S. really isn't going anywhere. He predicts a multipolar world. That is not a newsflash. Richard Nixon predicted one 40 years ago. My issue is the relation between labor rights and free trade. It's a paradox that is a few hundred years old. The author dismisses concern about human rights as an ethnocentric western value that others -- authorities in China and India -- cannot take seriously. I don't think that's fair to the people of China and India. They are just as compassionate and human as westerners. We are all one species with the same capacity for empathy and altruism. I do not buy the argument that labor standards are only for weatlhy developed countries that can afford them. When the United States trade representative negotiates free trade agreements with developing nations, this argument is encountered. It is a fallacy. Poor countries cannot afford not to have labor standards and rich countries do not just adopt human rights once they come to certain level of prosperity. In the United States, there was a civil war to end slavery. We did not just wake up one day and say, "We're wealthy enough -- free the slaves."

Well written, made a number of very good points. Recommend for anyone curious what the world stage might look like in the near future.
