9780465007448: Bound To Lead: The Changing Nature Of American Power

Is America still Number 1? A leading scholar of international politics and former State Department official takes issue with Paul Kennedy and others and clearly demonstrates that the United States is still the dominant world power, with no challenger in sight. But analogies about decline only divert policy makers from creating effective strategies for the future, says Nye. The nature of power has changed. The real-and unprecedented-challenge is managing the transition to growing global interdependence.

About the Author:

Joseph S. Nye, Jr., Dean of the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, was Chairman of the National Intelligence Council and Assistant Secretary of Defense in the Clinton administration. He is the author of several books, including The Paradox of American Power: Why the World's Only Superpower Can't Go It Alone and Bound to Lead: The Changing Nature of American Power. PublicAffairs also published his political thriller, The Power Game.

From Library Journal:

Nye, an eminent scholar of international relations and author of Nuclear Ethics ( LJ 5/1/86), joins the debate on the decline of American power with a blend of contemporary policy analysis and academic theory accessible to the informed general reader. He first explores the very concepts of power and decline before analyzing America's position relative to major competitors and our nation's outlook for the future. Nye concludes that the United States never enjoyed the degree of hegemony some now fear to be waning and, contrary to Paul Kennedy's hypothesis in The Rise and Fall of the Great Powers (LJ 12/87), that the United States will remain the dominant actor of the world scene if it adapts to the new power realities of an increasingly interdependent world. Highly recommended.
