ABSTRACT
The author argues that, although Eastern countries are emerging as global powers and many suppose that Western influence has fallen into decline, Western countries should still play an important role in shaping global politics. According to the author, Western countries like the U.S. are uncertain how to relate to China, Russia, or nations in the Middle East. Topics include the development of nations in 20th and 21st century history, international relations between the U.S. and Europe, political leadership, and the Cold War.
