State of the Word 2014 – Titans, Past and Future
The 2014 edition of State of the World builds on the myth of the Titans in an era when so-called “emerging countries” (Brazil, China, India, South Africa, and Turkey) dominate the daily news headlines. The book reviews the phenomenal rise of these countries on the international scene and how they are overtaking Western titans, notably the United States.
The book offers a comprehensive look at titanic power – its transformations, new incarnations, and emerging players – in a diverse series of case studies. The book also casts light on major strategic and diplomatic tensions, revealing the evolution of conflicts in Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America.
