George Friedman has become a leading expert in geopolitical forecasting, sought out for his thoughtful assessment of current trends and explanation of near-future events. In THE NEXT HUNDRED YEARS, Friedman turns his keen analytic eye on the future. Drawing on a profound understanding of history—and consistent geopolitical patterns dating back to the Roman Empire—he shows that we are now, for the first time in half a millennium, experiencing the dawn of a new historical cycle. For five hundred years, from 1492 to 1991, European power ruled the world. After World War II, however, a series of civil wars and power shifts deprived Europe of its empire and put an end to its dominance. With the fall of the Soviet Union, the European epoch came to an end. The United States has now assumed the mantle of global power, and Friedman spells out exactly what this will mean to America and to the world in the coming century: ·A specific series of apparent miscalculations by the United States will give it greater power in the global arena ·At least one major war, and several unexpected civil wars, will erupt in the next fifty years ·A crisis will develop between Pacific Ocean nations as Japan, now the world’s second largest economy, fights for its share of geopolitical power and China undergoes a major internal upheaval ·Space will play an important role in the twenty-first century, which will see the militarization of space, and eventually the exploitation of resources on the moon and other planets. Grounded in Friedman’s unmatched grasp of both historical and contemporary trends, THE NEXT HUNDRED YEARS is a compelling, realistic, and eye-opening portrait of the future.
