About this product
- DescriptionUnipolar Politics brings together prominent scholars in international relations to analyze the decisions that major powers have made since the Cold War to adapt to a rapidly changing ecomic and security environment. The book points to powerful evidence that nations around the world are bandwagoning with the United States in most respects, while still trying to maintain some independence of action in the event that America becomes isolationist, antagonistic, or simply uninterested in a particular regional crisis. Meanwhile the United States is being pulled in different directions by its own ecomic and security requirements, leading to policy contradictions that must be resolved if the unipolar moment is to endure. The authors ackwledge that, while great power wars are w unlikely, positional conflicts over resources and markets still remain, and may even be strengthening.
