Format: Hardcover
My wife, actually attended courses with Organski at U of Michigan and she kept his book and passed it to me. Very clear and insightful framework for understanding the dynamics of the rise and fall of great powers. My edition was 1968 and Organski accurately layed out the likely evolution of the Soviet Union, China, EU and the US. Excellent background to the tensions now taking place in E Europe and the way China is engaging the world as it grows in economic power. Without prejudice, outlines the challenges that totalitarian and party-dominated governments present to democracies. Really a must read!

This book was first published in 1958 and predicted, with amazing clarity, the future changes in the world. This book is an update and was published in 1969. Dr. A.F.K. Organski came up with the fundamental theories which explain about how nations change over time. He explains the causes of war and how countries evolve over time. It is the complete explanation of how the world works. In my opinion it is the best book ever written !!!!!!!
