As the century winds to a close, many observers are wondering whether the United States can remain competitive. Essentially this book is an analysis of America's declining world position and how its economic dominance has been eroded by more industrious and dynamic rivals. Halberstam, one of the foremost analysts of the contemporary scene, faces the facts squarely and, while his style is not alarmist, few U.S. readers will be comforted by this sobering account of the struggle for world economic supremacy. The author admits to surprise at the absence of an atmosphere of crisis in the United States. With the publication of this excellent study, that may soon change. Essential for most libraries.
