Frances Aileen Allen reviews The Post-American World by Fareed Zakaria

Frances Aileen Allen reviews The Post-American World by Fareed Zakaria
Timely, accurate, balanced and informative best describe the book entitled The Post-American World by Fareed Zakaria. It is his third book, and was just published in 2008. His second book was The Future of Freedom which was published in 2003. This author is a 44-year-old man, born and raised in India. He is now an American citizen. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Yale and a doctorate degree from Harvard. He is obviously intelligent, informed, and maintains contact with key figures all over the world. He has taught at several universities. Currently he is a senior editor for Newsweek and hosts an hour-long news show on CNN each Sunday morning at 10:00 AM on the west coast. He is an expert as he conducts interviews with his important guests. His guests have included journalists as well as Gordon Brown, the current prime minister of Great Britain. Given these credentials, it is no wonder that this new book quickly appeared on the non-fiction Best Seller list and is currently number five.

The "theme" or focus of Zakaria’s book is to explain how our country, America, has reached its current status. He maintains this status is not of "decline," but rather one that is being challenged by "the rise of the rest." The "rest" are China, India, Brazil, and others who have achieved great progress in recent years so that America can no longer be regarded as "the leader of the world." Zakaria offers statistics and other evidence to support this thesis. A review by Dan Simpson of the Pittsburg Gazette appeared Sunday, June 29, 2008, in the Bay Area News Group "Books and Authors" section. Simpson concludes that Zakaria’s book is not a "decline and fall" treatise, but that the world is catching up rapidly. Thus, Simpson’s evaluation supports the focus of Zakaria’s book which is "the rise of the rest." This five-word phrase is repeated again and again in the book. In fact, Zakaria uses it also as the title of his nine-page article which appeared in the May 12, 2008, issue of Newsweek. The final prophetic paragraph of his book is as follows:

"For America to thrive in this new and challenging era, for it to succeed amid the rise of the rest, it need fulfill only one test. It should be a place that is inviting and exciting to the young student who enters the country today as it was for this awkward eighteen-year-old a generation ago."

Whether you read the nine-page article or the 259-page book, I believe you will agree with Simpson and myself when we say, "Zakaria’s particular perspective makes his analysis and prescriptions truly worth reading."
