The United States is the world's only superpower: no other nation possesses comparable military and economic power or has interests that bestride the globe. Yet the critical question facing America remains unanswered: What ought to be America's global strategy to preserve and maintain its exceptional position in the world? It is this question that Zbigniew Brzezinski tackles head-on in this incisive and pathbreaking new book.Central to Brzezinski's analysis is the struggle for control of the Eurasian landmass, which is home to the greatest part of the globe's population, natural resources, and economic activity and is the "grand chessboard" on which America's supremacy will be ratified and challenged in the years to come.The heart of The Grand Chessboard is Brzezinski's analysis of the four critical regions of Eurasia and of the stakes for America in each arena -- Europe, Russia, Central Asia, and East Asia -- why France and Germany will play pivotal roles whereas Britain and Japan will not; why NATO expansion offers Russia the chance to undo the mistakes of its past (and why Russia cannot afford to toss this opportunity aside); why the fates of Ukraine and Azerbaijan are so important to America; and why China is more likely to be America's geostrategic partner than a menace.Brzezinski's surprising and original conclusions often turn conventional wisdom on its head as he lays the groundwork for a new and compelling vision of America's geostrategic interests. Once again, Zbigniew Brzezinski provides our nation with a philosophical and practical guide for maintaining and managing our hard-won global power.
