Overview

Will the world of the twenty-first century be dominated by global companies, ethnic strife, or rogue tyrants? This definitive volume argues convincingly that the answer depends on the actions of the world's great powers, which will continue to set the rules affecting globalization, culture, and pariah regimes.

In A Century's Journey, seven influential scholars trace the global strategies of the world's most powerful countries during the past 100 years. Through authoritative chapters on each great power, readers will learn how these countries redefined their interests in response to momentous changes and reshaped the world so that it bears only slight resemblance to the world of 1900.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The brilliant result of [a] parallel authorship. [Pastor and Castaûeda] have written Act One of the coming Mexico-U.S. relationship."
—Carlos Fuentes
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Pastor and Castaneda explore, in alternating chapters, the history, current state and future of Mexican-American relations. ``Both authors of this significant survey are guardedly optimistic about the fundamental question: whether cooperation is possible between the two countries,'' remarked PW. (Oct.)
