Publisher's Summary

The two decades after the Cold War saw unprecedented cooperation between the major powers as the world converged on a model of liberal international order. Now, great power competition is back, and the liberal order is in jeopardy.

Russia and China are increasingly revisionist in their regions. The Middle East appears to be unraveling. And many Americans question why the United States ought to lead. What will great power competition look like in the decades ahead? Will the liberal world order survive? What impact will geopolitics have on globalization? And what strategy should the United States pursue to succeed in an increasingly competitive world?

In this book, Thomas Wright explains how major powers will compete fiercely even as they try to avoid war with each other. Wright outlines a new American strategy - responsible competition - to navigate these challenges and strengthen the liberal order.

    Story
    "Authoritive, informative and perfectly timed"
    What did you like most about All Measures Short of War?

    The book covers a lot of geopolitical ground while maintaining a pace that keeps the listener fresh and interested. For a newcomer to books on international relations like myself, I found it accessible and informative but with enough depth that I would imagine I'll revisit it many times. I listened to this book during President Trump's first foreign trip and every chapter gave context and rich insight into the events that were unfolding in the news. It is so perfectly timed with current events that at times it was a terrifying. I'm delighted I read it and would recommend it to everyone.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like how comprehensive it was. It moved effortlessly from giving the historical context of international relations to giving sharp and concise analysis.


    What about Keith Sellon-Wright’s performance did you like?

    I thought it was good. Measured, calm and easy to listen to.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    At times it was terrifying.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book. Looking forward to listening to it again.
