Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A relentlessly intelligent book.”  New York Times Book Review
“Zakaria…is judicious, reasonable, smooth, [and] intelligent…He points out that, aside from some pockets of backwardness, the whole world has been getting much richer…Even though the economic scene looks gloomier now than it did when he finished his book, Zakaria is correct to insist that many people everywhere have benefited from the global boom.”  New Yorker
“Thought-provoking and important…Fareed Zakaria, whose wise and perceptive editorials in the American magazine Newsweek should be required reading for policymakers around the planet, has written a minor masterpiece full of pragmatic, informed intelligence…Zakaria is optimistic, though far from complacent…Read Zakaria to know what has, should, and will happen.”  Guardian (London)
“When a book proclaims that it is not about the decline of America but ‘the rise of everyone else,’ readers might expect another diatribe about our dismal post-9/11 world. They are in for a pleasant surprise as Newsweek editor and popular pundit Zakaria…delivers a stimulating, largely optimistic forecast of where the twenty-first century is heading…A lucid, thought-provoking appraisal of world affairs, this book will engage readers on both sides of the political spectrum.”  Publishers Weekly (starred review)
