The post-American world : release 2.0 by Fareed Zakaria ( Book )
15 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 1,289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The New York Times bestseller, revised and expanded with a new afterword: the essential update of Fareed Zakaria's international bestseller about America and its shifting position in world affairs. Fareed Zakaria's international bestseller The Post-American World pointed to the "rise of the rest" -- the growth of countries like China, India, Brazil, and others -- as the great story of our time, the story that will undoubtedly shape the future of global power. Since its publication, the trends he identified have proceeded faster than anyone could have anticipated. The 2008 financial crisis turned the world upside down, stalling the United States and other advanced economies. Meanwhile emerging markets have surged ahead, coupling their economic growth with pride, nationalism, and a determination to shape their own future. In this new edition, Zakaria makes sense of this rapidly changing landscape. With his customary lucidity, insight, and imagination, he draws on lessons from the two great power shifts of the past 500 years -- the rise of the Western world and the rise of the United States -- to tell us what we can expect from the third shift, the "rise of the rest." The great challenge for Britain was economic decline. The challenge for America now is political decline, for as others have grown in importance, the central role of the United States, especially in the ascendant emerging markets, has already begun to shrink. As Zakaria eloquently argues, Washington needs to begin a serious transformation of its global strategy, moving from its traditional role of dominating hegemon to that of a more pragmatic, honest broker. It must seek to share power, create coalitions, build legitimacy, and define the global agenda -- all formidable tasks. None of this will be easy for the greatest power the world has ever known -- the only power that for so long has really mattered. America stands at a crossroads: In a new global era where the United States no longer dominates the worldwide economy, orchestrates geopolitics, or overwhelms cultures, can the nation continue to thrive? - Publisher
From wealth to power : the unusual origins of America's world role by Fareed Zakaria ( Book )
16 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and held by 760 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
If rich nations routinely become great powers, Zakaria asks, then how do we explain the strange inactivity of the United States in the late nineteenth century? By 1885, the U.S. was the richest country in the world. And yet, by all military, political, and diplomatic measures, it was a minor power. To explain this discrepancy, Zakaria considers a wide variety of cases between 1865 and 1908 in which the U.S. considered expanding its influence in such diverse places as Canada, the Dominican Republic, and Iceland. Taking a position consistent with the realist theory of international relations, he argues that the President and his administration tried to increase the country's political influence abroad when they saw an increase in the nation's relative economic power. But they frequently had to curtail their plans for expansion, he shows, because they lacked a strong central government that could harness that economic power for the purposes of foreign policy. America was an unusual power - a strong nation with a weak state. It was not until late in the century, when power shifted from states to the federal government and from the legislative to the executive branch, that leaders in Washington could mobilize the nation's resources for international influence

The future of freedom illiberal democracy at home and abroad by Fareed Zakaria ( )
11 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"American democracy is, in many people's minds, the model for the rest of the world. Fareed Zakaria points out that the American form of democracy is one of the least democratic in use today. Members of the Supreme Court and the Federal Reserve, institutions that fundamentally shape our lives, are appointed, not elected. The Bill of Rights enumerates a set of privileges to which citizens are entitled, no matter what the majority says. By restricting our democracy, we enhance our freedom"--Container

At an Aspen Institute seminar on Islam and the West moderated by Moyers, eight distinguished journalists and scholars from around the world discuss reactions to the destruction of the World Trade Center towers and what subsequent events reveal about Islam's contradictions.

The panel draws distinctions between the behavior of Muslims and the teachings of Islam and articulates the difference between terrorist groups such as Al Qaeda and fundamentalist political groups.

Can the world tolerate an Iran with nuclear weapons? : Krauthammer and Yadlin vs. Zakaria and Nasr : the Munk debate on Iran by Amos Yadlin ( Book )
3 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
With tensions between Iran, Israel, and Western powers reaching new highs over the Islamic Republic's nuclear enrichment program, the tenth edition of the Munk Debates investigates how the world should respond to Iran's nuclear ambitions. For some, the case for a pre-emptive strike on Iran is ironclad. An Iranian bomb would flood the volatile Middle East with nuclear weapons and trap Israel in a state of perilous insecurity ' along with much of the world's oil supply. Others argue that a nuclear Iran could be the very stabilizing force that the region needs, as the threat of nuclear war makes conventional conflicts more risky. These same voices also ask: can the West and Israel afford to attack Iran when doing so could roll back the Arab Spring and re-entrench reactionary forces throughout the Middle East' In this edition of the Munk Debates ' Canada's premier international debate series ' former Israel Defense Forces head of military intelligence Amos Yadlin, Pulitzer Prize'winning political commentator Charles Krauthammer, CNN host Fareed Zakaria, and Iranian-born academic Vali Nasr debate the consequences of a nuclear-armed Iran. For the first time ever, this electrifying debate, which played to a sold-out audience, is now available in print, along with candid interviews with the debaters. With tempers flaring between governments, the world's oil supply in peril, and global security at risk, the Munk Debate on Iran tries to answer: Can the world tolerate an Iran with nuclear weapons'

L'avenir de la liberté : la démocratie illibérale aux États-Unis et dans le monde by Fareed Zakaria ( Book )
2 editions published in 2003 in French and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Un remarquable essai sur les rapports entre démocratie, libertés individuelles et économie de marché au début du 21e siècle. Passant en revue la situation dans les diverses régions du monde, l'auteur s'interroge sur la montée des dérives fondamentalistes, démagogiques, populistes ou autoritaires qui se font dans le cadre formel de la démocratie sans pour autant avoir la moindre affinité avec les valeurs libérales. De même, il fait remarquer que l'économie de marché semble facilement pouvoir se dispenser des droits individuels. [SDM]
