Insight political read!,
This review is from: Every Nation for Itself: Winners and Losers in a G-Zero World (Hardcover)
I'm no expert in global politics, but I've always had an enthusiasm for the subject. To anyone with a genuine curiosity for international relations- and for how politics and economics intersect globally- Every Nation For Itself is a very good read: I ended up reading it in one night and one afternoon. It touches on such a broad range of subjects. Bremmer summarizes how the world order of today spawned from WWII. He outlines all of the biggest global challenges and supplies some unconventional insights--discussion of how the Arctic is primed to become a battleground for resources in the coming decades was an interesting angle I hadn't encountered before. He must mention over 100 countries, naming dozens of winners and losers in the "G-Zero" world that he very convincingly portrays as our reality today. If you have more than a passing interest in world affairs, international relations, or geopolitics--or general current events globally-- definitely worth the time and money. A quick read too.
