"(E)xcellent...Nye offers an illuminating distillation of the power relationships shaping a world in which the state with the best military can lose to the adversary with the better story." --The Financial Times "As power moves from west to east and from the palaces of dictators to the street, it is not just the identities of power brokers that are changing: so is the very meaning of power. No one is better placed to explain these trends than the scholar-statesman Joe Nye... The Future of Power contains important essays on both 'cyber power' and 'American decline', but what is most useful is Nye's subtle exegesis of the mechanics of more conventional forms of power." --The New Statesman "A concise, forceful statement of what Nye refers to as the liberal realist position in the US academy and in US politics... (which) paints a plausible scenario for the continuance of the US at the heart of the international system." --Times Higher Education Supplement "(W)hile the British generally take a wary attitude to international gurus, it is worth bearing in mind that what Nye... think(s) today has a habit of becoming the global consensus tomorrow. --Mary Dejevsky, The Independent"Vom Verlag:
Power evolves. At the beginning of the twenty-first century, unsurpassed in military strength and ownership of world resources, the United States was indisputably the most powerful nation in the world. But the global information age is rendering these traditional markers of power obsolete. To remain at the pinnacle of world power, the United States must adopt a strategy that considers the impact of the internet on global power resources. The Future of Power examines what it means to be powerful in the twenty-first century and illuminates the road ahead.

Buchbeschreibung Hachette Book Group USA Jan 2012, 2012. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Neu. 209x141x24 mm. Neuware - One of America's leading policy intellectuals, who coined the term soft power, looks at what has happened to American power from the time of Kennedy in the 60's through the present day. In the era of Kennedy and Khrushchev, power in the US was expressed in terms of nuclear missiles, industrial Capacity, numbers of men under arms, and tanks lined up ready to cross the plains of Eastern Europe. By 2010, none of these factors confer power in the same way: industrial capacity seems an almost a Victorian virtue, and cyber threats are wielded by non-state actors. Politics changed, and the nature of power - defined as the ability to affect others to obtain the outcomes you want - had changed dramatically. Power is not static, its story is of shifts and innovation, technologies and relationships. Josephy Nye is a long-term analyst of power and a hands-on practitioner in government. Many of his ideas have been at the heart of recent debates over the role America should play in the world: his concept of 'soft power' has been adopted by leaders from Britain to China: 'smart power' has been adopted as the bumper-sticker for the Obama Administration's foreign policy. This book is the summary of his work, as relevant to general readers as to foreign policy specialists. It is a vivid narrative that delves behind the elusive faces of power to discover its enduring nature in the cyber age. 240 pp. Englisch. Artikel-Nr. 9781610390699
