Kennedy's classic The Rise and Fall of the Great Powers considered the forces within nations that led to their rise and fall. In Preparing for the Twenty-first Century he addresses a larger and uniquely modern question: how will transnational forces in a world of scarce resources, instant communications, and exploding population affect the nations of the world and the people who inhabit them as the new century dawns? The result is a bold work that bridges the gap between history, prophecy, and policy.
"A heady, dizzying experience, replete with possibilities...[Kennedy] is one of the few intellectuals writing today who's willing to grapple with all the complexities of all global or national problems."--San Francisco Chronicle
