Editorial Reviews

Review

Economist

“Dilip Hiro writes from an unabashedly un-American point of view. It is arresting to see a familiar object assume an unfamiliar shape.”



Financial Times

“Typically, a Hiro book is a dispassionate chronicle that refuses to take sides, letting facts speak for themselves… His challenging, even contrarian account of it [a multipolar world] should be required reading not just for the British Foreign Office, but among foreign ministries more generally .”

About the Author

Dilip Hiro is one of the world’s leading experts on Middle Eastern, Central and South Asian, and Islamic affairs and has written many books including the classic history of the Iran-Iraq war, The Longest War, the national bestseller, Iraq: In the Eye of the Storm, and the acclaimed history of oil and politics, Blood of the Earth. He contributes regularly to The New York Times, The Guardian, The Washington Post, The Observer, The Nation, Los Angeles Times, Salon and TomDispatch, and is a commentator for CNN and the BBC. He lives in London.

Five COMPELLING Stars!! Excellent, authoritative, highly informative, and thought-provoking! The esteemed London-based author, historian, and foreign policy expert Dilip Hiro gives us an important treatise that is both a geopolitical overview of world and regional history and an analysis of the rise of the multi-polar nations/powers controlling our world, as viewed by the author from outside the US sphere of influence. He analyzes the world in "its late imperial phase" and draws his conclusions placing the US in its rightful context among other equally-weighted nations and organizations in the eastern and western hemispheres. He also provides a great deal of historical detail that many of us may have missed, even as we lived through it. Mr Hiro notes the USA became the sole super power on 1 January 1992 after the fall of the Soviet Union, a status which the book reveals began to slip with the Clinton administration's Russian entanglements, began to unravel during George W. Bush's 2 simultaneous war fronts and the US (and worldwide) near-miss financial meltdown, and is now slipping further with the current challenges and difficulties of the Obama administration. He begins with the rise and fall of the bi-polar world, then "America's Place In The Sun", Russia, the important politics of oil in Venezuela and Iran, the People's Republic of China (PRC) (note the sections: "Hugging the Russian Bear" and the "Dragon and Uncle Sam"), the complexities of India, Pakistan and their region, the European Union, South America, and what he sees as "Future Flashpoints", among other topics. Along the way we get a very good, detailed but non-technical analysis of the US and worldwide financial meltdown, in the midst of our "unbridled capitalism".Read more ›
