Rising China, Trump’s America, and the Dangerous Beginning of a Post-American World

Rising China, Trump’s America, and the Dangerous Beginning of a Post-American World

Fast-rising China and the outcome of the recent US elections are fundamentally transforming the global order. China’s economic growth, military expansion, aggressive behavior in the South and East China Seas, growing presence around the world, and increasingly emboldened foreign policy present a growing challenge to the US-led global system created in the aftermath of the Second World War. Statements by US President-elect Donald Trump questioning US commitments around the world have further exacerbated this fundamental shift. Living in a post-American world will have enormous consequences and touch every aspect of our lives. Metzl explores the key drivers of our fundamentally transforming world, what it will mean for global politics, economics, and culture, and what kinds of collective action will be required to lay a foundation for a stable future.
