From the bestselling author ofBalkan GhostsandThe Ends of the Earthcomes a fascinating new book on the imminent global chaos that is as brilliant as it is necessary, as original as it is controversial. The end of the Cold War has not ushered in the global peace and prosperity that many had anticipated. Environmental degradation is causing the rampant spread of famine and disease, and a rising number of nations are being torn by violent wars of fierce tribalism and trenchant regionalism. Our newest democracies, such as Russia and Venezuela, are bloody maelstroms of violence and crime, while America is beset with an alarmingly high number of apathetic citizens content to concern themselves with matters of entertainment and convenience. Bold, erudite, and profoundly important,The Coming Anarchyis a compelling must-read by one of todays most penetrating writers and provocative minds. Analytically daring.... Informed by a rock-solid, unwavering realism and an utter absence of sentimentality.... Kaplan is a knowledgeable and forceful polemicist who mixes the attributes of journalist and visionary. The New York Times Ambitiously eclectic.... [Kaplan] is one of Americas most engaging writers on contemporary international affairs. The New York Times Book Review From the Trade Paperback edition.
