Indeed, the changing distribution of global power and the new phenomenon of massive political awakening intensify, each in its own way, the volatility of contemporary international relations. As China’s influence grows and as other emerging powers-Russia or India or Brazil for example-compete with each other for resources, security, and economic advantage, the potential for miscalculation and conflict increases.

In 1991, the United States was the only global superpower. It seemed that the 21st century, like the 20th, would belong to America. Then came the stock market bubble, the costly foreign unilateralism of the younger Bush presidency, and the financial catastrophe of 2008. The emergence of global power; The rise of Asia and the dispersal of global power ; The impact of global political awakening - Part II. The waning of the American dream.

Zbigniew Brzezinski’s book Strategic Vision surveys current global affairs and assesses a hinge moment in time when the world’s center of gravity is shifting from the West to the East. Continue reading the main story.

America, Brzezinski argues, must define and pursue a comprehensive and long-term a geopolitical vision, a vision that is responsive to the challenges of the changing historical context.

Basic Books, 24 січ. 2012 р. - 208 стор. America, Brzezinski argues, must define and pursue a comprehensive and long-term a geopolitical vision, a vision that is responsive to the challenges of the changing historical context. This book seeks to provide the strategic blueprint for that vision.

The outgoing 2012 year was marked, among other things, by the publication of Zbigniew Brzezinski's book Strategic Vision: America and the Crisis of Global Power (Strategic vision: America and the crisis of global power). 1) The author is known, let's say, for his extremely caring attitude towards Russia.

By 1991, following the disintegration first of the Soviet bloc and then of the Soviet Union itself, the United States was left standing tall as the only global super-power. The 21st century seemed destined to be yet another American century. But that optimism did not last long as the stock market bubble and the costly foreign unilateralism of the younger Bush presidency, as well as the financial catastrophe of 2008 jolted America – and much of the West – into a sudden recognition of its systemic vulnerability to unregulated greed. In Strategic Vision, esteemed author and former National Security Advisor, Zbigniew Brzezinski argues that to quell mounting anxieties about the growing capacity for Eastern economic and technological innovation, America must define and pursue a long-term geopolitical vision. Only in this way will it become more strategically deliberate and historically enlightened in its global engagement with the new East. A tactical blueprint, Strategic Vision argues that without an America that is economically vital, socially appealing, responsibly powerful, and capable of sustaining an intelligent foreign engagement, the geopolitical prospects for the West could become increasingly grave.

Realistic
The first sentence inside of the dust jacket of this 2012 New York Times Best Seller says: “Strategic Vision is a much-needed wake-up call regarding the international repercussions if America fails to address its multiple domestic crises successfully.” Note also that the title of Part I of the book is: “The Receding West”, while the title of Part II is: “The waning of the American Dream”; both of these could easily be titles of many articles, books, films, and podcasts, etc. in today’s news.

This book in many ways does a 180-degree-turn on what the author says about American primacy, the topic covered in his prior book, The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives.

Accessing multiple daily media sources about the US shows a plethora of articles about what has happened in American life today, including the following: Detroit’s water crisis; Chicago’s pension plan insolvency and the bankruptcy of its state: Illinois and how all of this will affect peoples’ retirement (if they can retire at all); the downward spiral of US schools, whose students now place the lowest of all of the industrialized countries, with 2 special groups, ESL/ ELL and Special Ed. leaving the public school system - or worse - transferring to charter schools that the US taxpayer also has to fund but aren’t even equipped to teach. None of this bodes well for US society right now.

How could Dr. Brzezinski’s earlier book, The Grand Chessboard, pushing US primacy, link with this book as a chaser, even starting out discussing its global decay? Could the global expansion costs have caused the US to leave the center of the world stage? Who are the current global players, instead of us, and why?

When an author writes a book, especially one that is political and deals with foreign affairs, this type of book captures activities as a snapshot in time. When authors write later books, sometimes their views change. The publication dates between these 2 books is only 15 years; however, right now, that gap has stretched to 20 years, which really shows even more of a marked reversal.

This is why I recommend that readers also buy and read Brzezinski’s earlier book, The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives (1997), the natural bookend to this one. Both books should be read and - more importantly – discussed with other people, to try to get a feel for what main political themes were planned and executed in the past, the effects of these national/ global decisions regarding the US, and the blowback that has been happening to the US since then and why.

Doing this mental/ social sifting and refining of ideas and main themes helps readers understand our country’s political/ diplomatic arena and presents a clearer lens for Americans to understand how we fit into the ever-changing grand scheme of world events that Brzezinski has shared with us – at both ends (i.e. via these 2 books). This process also helps us use important, necessary higher-order thinking and communicative skills as citizens, to deal with what is happening in our country and world today, especially during election times.

Strategic Visions (along with Chessboard) should be required reading to increase the Politics/ Foreign Affairs knowledge base for every inquiring mind, especially regarding the concept of ‘global order’ and how the US currently fits inside of this.

This is a very informative book. Parallel to one theme expressed in Thomas Friedman's Hot, Flat and Crowded, the author believes that the world status of the U.S. A. Can be maintained to a certain degree if its leaders act properly and now - the condition now being of huge importance. Thus, hope, or despair? I also recommend Daniel Yergin's The Quest.

I had expected a more penetrating analysis, but still consider this book to be worth the effort to grasp the author's assessment.

I've always admired Zbig, and eagerly anticipated reading this book, and I was not disappointed! Zbig Brzezinski writing and usage of the English language is superb, and I applaud his sentence structure. It is a brilliant analysis of the current world structure, and I personally, concur with his reasoning and outlook. I look forward to another of his works in the future.

a great book for anyone who speculates into the future, outlining how America would compete, decline or rise, among the nations, what are the dynamics in world geopolitical arena, as a result of American decline or rise, what are the challenges and struggles ahead.

While I enjoyed the read for Zig's insights, the overkill of thesaurus driven verbiage was all too often quite distracting and served little purpose.

A very well balanced view of the importance of working cooperatively with other nations in the development of a comprehensive strategic plan to deal with threats of mutual interest. Dr. Brzesinski writes from a perspective that few have in terms of the mechanics of the process at all levels of government.

Much more realistic than his previous The Grand Chessboard, not to speak about G. Friedman's The Next 100 Years. Sees importance of Germany and France but is not sure about their direction.
The author even indicates that the Russians may be interested in their own security and that their interests perhaps should be taken into account in some way.
Doesn't believe in the truly mulitpolar ordering of the world.
