“This is not a book about the decline of America, but rather about the rise of everyone else.” So begins Fareed Zakaria’s blockbuster on the United States in the twenty-first century. The trends he identifies have proceeded faster than anyone anticipated. How might the nation continue to thrive in a truly global era? In this fully updated edition, Zakaria answers these questions with his customary lucidity, insight, and imagination.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A relentlessly intelligent book.” 

    New York Times Book Review

  • “Zakaria…is judicious, reasonable, smooth, [and] intelligent…He points out that, aside from some pockets of backwardness, the whole world has been getting much richer…Even though the economic scene looks gloomier now than it did when he finished his book, Zakaria is correct to insist that many people everywhere have benefited from the global boom.” 

    New Yorker

  • “Thought-provoking and important…Fareed Zakaria, whose wise and perceptive editorials in the American magazine Newsweek should be required reading for policymakers around the planet, has written a minor masterpiece full of pragmatic, informed intelligence…Zakaria is optimistic, though far from complacent…Read Zakaria to know what has, should, and will happen.” 

    Guardian (London)

  • “When a book proclaims that it is not about the decline of America but ‘the rise of everyone else,’ readers might expect another diatribe about our dismal post-9/11 world. They are in for a pleasant surprise as Newsweek editor and popular pundit Zakaria…delivers a stimulating, largely optimistic forecast of where the twenty-first century is heading…A lucid, thought-provoking appraisal of world affairs, this book will engage readers on both sides of the political spectrum.” 

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • A New York Times Bestseller

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Kristen | 2/13/2014

    " I wouldn't say that this book is the idealogical dynamite that his first was for me, but I did appreciate how he framed the US in the context of the new world we live in. It made me realize that if we don't make several important improvements as a nation then we are in danger of slipping in our unique standing. But according to Zakaria, maybe that's not such a bad thing after all. "

    " Fareed Zakaria GPS is my favorite Sunday morning TV commentary. This new edition of his Post American World was worth a re-read as he updated to include latest news. An important book, a global view of the world. "
