A Second Tour Through the 'Second World'

Tuesday, Aug. 17, 2010

World Politics Review is not publishing the last two weeks in August. We will resume publishing again on Aug. 30. But during this time, we'll be opening up some of our subscription-only content to non-subscribers. Today we feature an article that was part of our July 13 feature, "Rethinking the Post-American World."

In "A Second Tour Through the 'Second World,'" Parag Khanna says that the insights generated from geopolitical schools of thought give us enormous foresight into global trends. And for better or worse, he argues, they support the argument that the global power structure continues to rapidly diffuse away from American hegemony toward a post-American world.

Read A Second Tour Through the 'Second World' free through Aug. 29.
