Parag Khanna on the Global Great Game and Geopolitics
The Global Great Game: America, Europe, China and 21st Century Geopolitics with Parag Khanna.Grand explanations of how to understand the complex twenty-first century world have all fallen short-until now.In The Second World: Empires and Influence in the New Global Order, Parag Khanna shows how America's dominant moment has quickly been replaced by a geopolitical marketplace where the European Union and China compete with the U.S. to shape world order on their own terms.The primary battlefield is the Second World, regions lying between the three leading empires and the third world: Eastern Europe, Central Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, and East Asia.Second World countries could rise into the first world or fall into the third-their future is precarious and uncertain, but their resources are the critical assets for the three expanding superpowers.Whoever dominates the second world will lead the 21st century and Khanna argues that America itself runs the risk of descending into the second world if it does not renew itself and redefine its role in the world - New America Foundationmoreless
