The Rise and Fall of Great Powers

With the rise of India and China, and the growing hemispheric importance of Brazil, US power is in relative decline. How will the US manage a return to a multi-polar world? What are its strengths and weaknesses as a global power? And is the West entering a period of long and inevitable decline? To explore these questions, Yale Professor Paul Kennedy, author of The Rise and Fall of Great Powers (London, 1988), will be in conversation with Bronwen Maddox, Editor of Prospect Magazine.
