From the Publisher"As the US diminishes its investment in the global public good by acting unilaterally, so others may feel the sting of American power more strongly. In a telling essay by Josef Joffe, in the book edited by G. John Ikenberry, America Unrivaled, we are reminded that primacy does not come cheap, and that the price is measured not just in dollars and cents, but above all in the currency of obligation. A truly 'great' power must do more than merely deny others the reason and opportunity to challenge or balance it. . . . This book deserves to be read."—Christopher Coker, Times Literary Supplement, May 23, 2003
"This volume taps realist, liberal, and constructivist scholarship to deliver a number of competing and complementary conclusions on the potential return to traditional great power politics. . . .This is highly valuable for both its theoretical insights and relevance to current discussions on US foreign policy."—Virginia Quarterly Review, 79:3
"This book is a fine effort to take stock of the nature of the post-Cold War international system and a worthy attempt to train academic theorizing on practical concerns."—Gideon Rose, Foreign Affairs: Jan/Feb 2002.
"American Unrivaled contains the opinions of top thinkers on the critical question of how long America's unipolar power will last."—Joseph Nye, Harvard University
"John Ikenberry has assembled a fascinating collection of essays that examine how the rest of the world deals with America's dominating position in the global balance of power. The most striking feature of this impressive volume is how little agreement there is among the different authors."—John J. Mearsheimer , University of Chicago
