“Zakaria . . . may have more intellectual range and insights than any other public thinker in the West.” —Boston Sunday Globe In this international bestseller, Fareed Zakaria describes "the rise of the rest"—the political and economic ascendance of countries such as China, India, Brazil, Russia, South Africa, and Kenya. With his customary lucidity, insight, and imagination, Zakaria outlines the contemporary diffusion of power, drawing on lessons of history to help the United States face the challenges—and opportunities—of the post-American world.
