What is the current threat to world peace? What will the post Cold War-system look like in the 21st century? Who will follow the United States as the next world power? Power Transitions answers these provocative questions revolutionizing academic analysis and merging it with hands on policy. This book is a must-not only for graduate and undergraduate students in political science-it is an academic book that is approachable for everyone (especially international business executives) who wants to understand the current state of the world. Power Transitions intriguingly predicts China's rise to world dominance in carefully documented terms. India is predicted to be the power to dominate China. These statements are not alarmist statements, but scientifically derived predictions of prestigious academics, providing practical political solutions for these potentially dire events. The Department Chair of the National War College, Ronald Tammen, joined forces with Jacek Kugler, a distinguished professor from Claremont Graduate University, Alan Stam from Yale, and a hand-full of brilliant young analysts from various institutions to compile a new theory and a new perspective for a new age.

I purchased this book to write a paper on Power Transition Theory, and it turned out to have all the information I could possibly have needed! It is very easy to read; the authors explain everything clearly and concisely. I would definitely recommend this for both teachers, students, and people who just want to acquire knowledge.

I read this book a while ago while I was in Prof Tammen's Power Transitions course at Portland State University. I personally think that the theory is for the most part sound but the most important thing that can be derived from the book is a WORKING model or framework that can enable political leaders a rational method to make sound policy choices.

A must read by anyone interested in international politics. This book is meant to address policy-makers rather than the scientific community.

This fringe theory is not relevant to international relations today. Save your money and time with this garbage. The positive reviews must have come from the Kugler and his friends.
