From Wealth to Power
Princeton University Press
The growth of the American state, and of American power
"What turns rich nations into great powers," asks Fareed Zakaria in his opening line; he attempts to answer that question by examining American foreign policy from 1865 to 1908 observing that the period from 1865 to 1889 featured few expansive ventures, though that from 1890 to 1908 saw plenty expansions. Mr. Zakaria, now the editor of Newsweek, wrote "From Wealth to Power" for his doctoral ...

This is an amazing book!
This is an amazing book! Imagine been taken on a ride through the twentieth century by the people who made it and wrote about it at the time -- Nikolai Bukharin, Henry Stimson, Kissinger, Margaret Mead, Alexander Solzhenitsyn. All the articles are interesting, many are just dazzling. You go from inter-war isolation to World War II to the Cold War to Vietnam to the collapse of communism to ...

All national candidates for office should read this!
After someone sent on that photo of President Obama carrying this book, along with the screed about it being a book gloating over America's downfall, I checked out the reviews here and decided to order it. I'm frankly glad our President has read this book. It is not about America's downfall at all, it is about how we are going to have to share the stage. For decades to come we should be a ...
THE FUTURE OF FREEDOM
A Good Read
Fareed Zakaria's book is an excellent read for anyone interested in world affairs. He successfully entertains while teaching the reader about where in the world democracy is thriving, and offers his own explanations as to why it has been less than successful in certain regions. Bringing together the economic factors often neglected in discussions of democracy and freedom, Zakaria shows that ...

The Future of Freedom
Brilliant book written by an author who should work for the State Department
Zakaria hit this one out of the ballpark. All the 5-star reviews are right. This book makes you think about the historical role of democracy in nations around the globe and how each democratic government must be unique in order to fit with the society it governs. This thesis is then extended to consider what role, if any, the USA should play in the development of democracy around the world. ...

Contemporary words, timeless significance
The essays in this volume range from extremely good to outstanding to outright brilliant. Collectively, these forty-two essays chronicle the evolution of American foreign policy-its intellectual and political struggle to deal with the world since 1922. This compilation is divided into decades-1930s, 1940s, and so on, each dealing with the dominant themes of that decade, ranging from the founding ...
The Post-American World SIGNED
W.W. Norton & Company
NOT signed by author as claimed.
The headline for this book clearly states that it is SIGNED by the author. There was NO SIGNATURE. I could have easily purchased this used book for $4-5 elsewhere, but spent $18 + shipping for a "SIGNED" book. False, deceptive advertising. I will amend my review if this company sends me a genuine SIGNED copy. By the way, the book is a must-read for anyone interested in geopolitics. I gave about ...
