Addressing four major areas of concern--the shift of global power from West to East; the causes and consequences of America's declining global appeal; what would happen if America suffered long-term decline; and how America can reorient its geopolitical goals to prevent it--foreign policy powerhouse Brzezinski provides a comprehensive long-term strategic plan for America.
