"The Second World: Empires and Influence in the New Global Order"
March 20, 2008
A talk by Parag Khanna, Director of the Global Governance Initiative of the American Strategy Program at the New America Foundation.
In The Second World: Empires and Influence in the New Global Order, Parag Khanna examines the intersection of geopolitics and globalization to argue that America's dominant moment has been suddenly replaced by a geopolitical marketplace wherein the European Union and China compete with the United States to shape world order on their own terms. Mr. Khanna has worked previously at the World Economic Forum in Geneva, Switzerland, where he specialized in scenario and risk planning, and at the Council on Foreign Relations, where he conducted research on terrorism and conflict resolution.
