Description

The United States is engaged in a struggle to retain its power and legitimacy. American leadership has waned since the end of the Cold War, and Russia and China, detecting a void, are asserting themselves—not only as regional powerhouses but also globally and with the intent to challenge, even surpass, the United States. Yet unlike the climactic Great Power conflicts of the 20th century, shifts in power are today more discreet, incremental, and multifaceted in both method and effect: military realities hover in the wings and occasionally make themselves known, but the struggle is predominantly one of influence, narratives, and ambiguity. In similar ways, Iran, North Korea, and other regimes—even traditional partners of the United States—are jostling for power at the expense of the rules based international order created by the United States in the aftermath of World War II. On aggregate, the ongoing challenge is existential to U.S. hegemony—to Pax Americana—and to the values that have, at least ostensibly, underwritten this period of international affairs. – Excerpt from book.
