The rise of the rest / Newsweek

I read quite an interesting article in recent Newsweek.  In the article Fareed Zakaria (who is apparently the editor of Newsweek International) is summarizing the main thesis of his recent book, “The post-American World“.  I would say that this is an interested and a quite optimistic take on current affairs including globalization, raise of nationalism, violence, and shift in the balance of power.  Although the article is written from a very US-centric perspective, it is read as a call to US public to re-assess current geopolitical situation and acknowledge that things have changed – the US-led globalization project succeeded to a great degree and US has to adjust, or more so to reconcile to this new environment.  The article made me definitely interested in reading the book.
