The Next American Century

How the U.S. Can Thrive as Other Powers Rise

The Next American Century

“Finally, a thoughtful (and thought-provoking) book that tells us the positive strategic news about the rise of China, India, and other emerging global powers, without glossing over the challenges.”

—Dan Burstein, venture capitalist and author of Secrets of 24

“The Next American Century provides a strong, practical, optimistic lesson that Americans should take to heart.”

—Brent Scowcroft, former National Security Adviser ?to Presidents Gerald R. Ford and George H.W. Bush

“The Next American Century describes brilliantly why the world’s rising powers are not only necessary competitors but essential partners. The main challenge is to accept challenge. This positive, down-to-earth reminder should be essential reading.”

—Matt Miller, Fortune magazine columnist ?and author of The 2 Percent Solution

“The authors of The Next American Century offer a refreshing alternative to the customary prophesies of doom and the obsessive search for a new arch-enemy.”

—Brian Urquhart, former Under Secretary-General of the UN
