Instant interpretive history is a difficult and demanding task, and certainly more of an art than some would suggest. USA and the World describes not only what happened, but puts events in the context of the past and criticizes policy actions as appropriate. The result goes deeper than most of what appears in current publications. Updated annually and part of the renowned “World Today Series,” USA and the World presents an unusually penetrating look into America and its relationship to the rest of the world. The combination of factual accuracy and up-to-date detail along with its informed projections make this an outstanding resource for researchers, practitioners in international development, media professionals, government officials, potential investors and students. Now in its tenth edition, the content is thorough yet perfect for a one-semester introductory course or general library reference. Available in both print and e-book formats and priced low to fit student budgets.

From the bestselling author of The End of the Free Market, the story of three provocative choices facing the world's sole superpower. Global policy expert Ian Bremmer calls for a complete rethink of America's role in tomorrow's world. In an increasingly volatile international environment, the question has never been more important. Bremmer explores three choices, each with its own benefits and drawbacks: Independent America” argues that it's time for Washington to declare independence from the responsibility to solve everyone else's problems. Instead, America should lead by example by investing in America's enormous untapped potential. Moneyball America” acknowledges that we can't manage every international challenge but asserts that we must defend U.S. interests wherever they're threatened. It looks beyond phony arguments about American exceptionalism with a clear-eyed assessment of U.S. strengths and limitations. Indispensable America” insists that only Washington can promote the values on which global stability increasingly depends in our hyper-connected world. Turning inward would threaten America's security and prosperity. Bremmer makes his best pitch for each scenario, offers his own conclusions, and challenges the reader to choose.
