Disorder : hard times in the 21st century

Thompson, Helen, 1966 June 13-2022
Books
Getting to grips with the overlapping geopolitical, economic, and political crises faced by Western democratic societies in the 2020s. 'Disorder' explains the historical origins of the political shocks of the past decade, showing how the Covid-19 crisis blew apart fault lines in western democracies, the US-China relationship, NATO, and the European Union that had been accumulating for decades. The book tells three historical stories. The geopolitical story begins with the inherent difficulties the United States faced as an ascendant non-Eurasian power in the early 20th century, especially in the Middle East, and culminates in the American turn away from China in a world in which the United States is simultaneously a declining military power and a resurgent energy and financial power.
