"A professor at the Harvard Kennedy School and one of the most esteemed analysts of world affairs, Nye has been countering declinism for a quarter century, beginning with his 1990 book Bound to Lead. The brevity of his latest text belies its sweep, and judging by the reception it has received, even among those who are considerably less optimistic about America's prospects...one suspects it will endure as a central text of the anti-declinist oeuvre." Ali Wyne, American Interest "In his clear, short, and closely reasoned book, Nye presents a far different view of American power, making some unfashionable but compelling arguments. Nye believes that the American century is far from over and that for the foreseeable future, the United States will retain a unique ability to shape global events." Walter Russell Mead, Foreign Affairs "Nye outlines each issue briskly, with economy and precision, creating an ideal primer for anyone wishing to better understand the global stage and where America stands on it." LA Review of Books "Nye does the great service of examining this claim in his new book, Is the American Century Over?, giving a subtle analysis in terms of hard power (military and economic) and soft power (a concept introduced by Nye to refer to an attractive practice, at least a model or ideals such as liberty or democracy)." Huffington Post Is the American Century Over? is an excellent book that will help students of international affairs think carefully about the world and America's opportunities and challenges in the 21st century. It's brief, succinct and provocative." The Washington Diplomat "Academics and political junkies will probably breeze through Is the American Century Over? But the book is so well-written and accessible, general readers are likely to find it engaging and insightful as well. At its core, policy-oriented research and writing should strive to inform not just specialists or experts, but the public at large, making Nye's contribution to debates about America's purported decline that much more important." Huffington Post This short, well-argued book offers a powerful rebuttal to America's premature obituarists. The Economist A pioneer in the theory of soft power and the dean of American political scientists, Nye knows geopolitics. In his new book, Is the American Century Over?, Nye makes a strong case that American geopolitical superiority, far from being eclipsed, is still firmly in place and set to endure. And the biggest threat isn't China or India or Russia it's America itself. Time In this short, thoughtful book, Nye presents his case convincingly. It is a case that policy makers should ponder carefully. Huffington Post The United States will likely remain the world's predominant power for many decades to come, Joe Nye concludes in his insightful new book. This welcome prediction is tempered by Nye's warning about key challenges that could yet lead to American decline, most notably, political dysfunction at home. The Boston Globe US declinism can be overdone. In an excellent new essay asking Is the American Century Over? the Harvard scholar Joseph Nye points up America's enduring strengths economic, demographic and geographic as well as military. Financial Times "With his usual clarity and insight, Joe Nye gives us a fascinating analysis of the complexities of power, exploring hard and soft power, state and non-state actors, and how to retain leadership once domination is over. European readers have much to learn from the U.S. experience and its lessons for the evolution of the EU." Mario Monti, Prime Minister of Italy (2011 13) and President of Bocconi University "The future of American power is the great question of our century. No-one is better equipped than Joe Nye to answer it." Lt. Gen. Brent Scowcroft, USAF (Ret.), former Presidential National Security Advisor "This calm, reflective, and thoughtful antidote to alarm
