Josef JoffeAs I was passing through Hamburg earlier this week, it was great to catch up with Josef Joffe, Publisher-Editor of leading German weekly, Die Zeit, and Senior Fellow and Visiting Professor at Stanford University. A prolific commentator on everything from international security and US foreign policy to US-German relations and the Middle East, we had a lively discussion about his latest book, The Myth of America’s Decline: Politics, Economics, and a Half Century of False Prophecies. Here, he challenges the popular belief that America’s power is irrevocably waning and that China’s preeminence is inevitable.

Henry Kissinger wrote of the book:

“The Myth of America’s Decline effectively lays to rest the belief that America has lost its preeminence. Joffe’s well-documented research confirms an entirely different story…It is a book that should be of interest to all who may worried about America’s future”.
