After America: Narratives for the Next Global Age
Paul Starobin. Tantor Media, $39.99 (0pp) ISBN 978-1-4001-1315-6
Following in the footsteps of Fareed Zakaria's The Post-American World, Starobin lays out a case for the possibilities and perils of a new era in global politics in which the U.S. no longer unquestioningly reigns. Lloyd James reads with a studied casualness, riding the wave of Starobin's allusive line of thinking and artfully mimicking Starobin's anti-inflammatory narrative, the harmoniousness of his voice transmitting the author's lack of panic at the prospect of the post-American world. A Viking hardcover (Reviews, Apr. 6).
