Book Party for "No One's World: The West, the Rising Rest, and the Coming Global Turn" by Charlie Kupchan

In No One's World: The West, the Rising Rest, and the Coming Global Turn, Charles A. Kupchan argues that the world is headed for political and ideological diversity. The twenty-first century will not belong to America, China, Asia, or anyone else. It will be no one's world. Kupchan provides a detailed strategy for striking a bargain between the West and the rising rest by fashioning a new consensus on issues of legitimacy, sovereignty, and governance.
