Is the American Century Over?

Join us for a conversation with the author of Is the American Century Over?, Joseph S. Nye, as he argues that America's superpower status may be tempered, but is definitely not over.

For more than a century, the United States has been the world's most powerful state. Now some analysts predict that China will soon take its place. Does this mean that we are living in a post-American world? Will China's rapid rise spark a new Cold War between the two titans?

In this compelling essay, world renowned foreign policy analyst, Joseph Nye, explains why the American century is far from over and what the U.S. must do to retain its lead in an era of increasingly diffuse power politics.
