Known for his hawkish foreign policy at a time when the Democratic Party was increasingly dovish, he is a foreign policy realist and considered by some to be the Democrats’ response to Republican realist Henry Kissinger.

Zbigniew Brezezinski, or affectionately dubbed Dr. In sahovs,a sense, empires do not fall; rather, they fall apart, usually very slowly, though sometimes remarkably quickly.

brzeziinski Best-selling author and former national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski offers a bold new global vision for extending American preeminence in the 21st Century. References to this work on external resources.

Highly colored by Brzesinski’s agenda, but still a good geopolitical analysis. The “black hole” that Brzezinski refers to has reemerged to offer resistance to the United States’ geopolicial goals. As to the levers and strategic alliances necessary to retrain US global dominance, a lot of the names are familiar. Brzezinski asserts that these empires only reached the status of regional powers, with the United States being the only empire to In “The Grand Chessboard”, Zbigniew Brzezinski reveals his honest thoughts about democracy.

This writer is a heavyweight security policy advisor for Carter. A conflict with China, if we allow ourselves to slip into one, will be disastrous for both countries, militarily and economically, but military involvement in other parts of the world would steepen America’s decline.

Brzezinski also writes that the United States’ status as world’s premier power is unlikely to be seriously challenged by any single nation. Likewise, the imperatives necessitated by a strategy of global imperialism are not subject to the particular politics of the currently popular party.

Written inThe Grand Chessboard assesses America’s place on the world stage after the fall of the Soviet Union and formulates short, medium and long-term goals to ensure U. Stick to your knitting America.

Why viewing China as a menace is likely to become a self-fulfilling prophecy. In fact, the very opposite is truth. Any retractionalist can write about how the absence of American power is better for the world, but it takes real spirit and vision to articulate why it is not, and how it is not.

Great read if your into PoliSci.

Velika Šahovska Tabla by Zbigniew Brzeziński (3 star ratings)

The book being two decades old, and me not being super familiar with geopolitics from the mid- to late’s, I vrzezinski get much out of this, other than it’s a complicated situation that is still complicated today.

As a US-sceptic, it’s a challenge to read someone who actually believes US hegemonic power is a force for good, and that the world would be more chaotic and violent without it. As I say, the book was published before Putin and his aggressive program to restore Russia to the ranks of great powers.

The book describes the geopolitical history of the main Eurasian regions in great clarity, and makes the case for a strong USA overseeing the democratic development of Eurasia.

CD Audiobook 0 editions. Although a number of Brzezinski’s recommendations never came to fruition, the scenarios that were likely to arise if they had not been used are quite on-point.

I found that this book did help me understand why certain things where done the way they where. Never before has a populist democracy attained international supremacy. His writing is so dry and pretentious that once you start reading this you will never want to pick it up again and will look at it with dread when you see it on your nightstand and will accidentally get too far in to give up when after all, you set a goal for yourself to finish 50 books this year. Despite its age, this is a great insight into American foreign policy as laid out by a close advisor to 3 US presidents.

They are our principal challenge. Jason Papademos rated it liked it Mar 08, It’s an almost cold sweat inducing, manic-laugh giving, sad way the US has been trudging through the world. If you read his work with an objective eye, you will see that the concerns he addresses as the groundwork for this book are very important and This book was a great brzezinskj and very informative.
