Turbulent and Might Continent Turbulent and Might Continent
Anthony Giddens

LSE Review of Books

Gerhard Schröder, former Chancellor of Germany

Javier Solana, former EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Secretary-General of NATO

"A brilliant and subtle contribution to the future of Europe."

Is the American Century Over? Is the American Century Over?
Joseph S. Nye, Jr.

"With his usual clarity and insight, Joe Nye gives us a fascinating analysis of the complexities of power, exploring hard and soft power, state and non-state actors, and how to retain leadership once domination is over. European readers have much to learn from the U.S. experience and its lessons for the evolution of the EU."
Mario Monti, Prime Minister of Italy (2011-13) and President of Bocconi University

"The future of American power is the great question of our century. No-one is better equipped than Joe Nye to answer it."
Lt. Gen. Brent Scowcroft, USAF (Ret.), former Presidential National Security Advisor

"This calm, reflective, and thoughtful antidote to alarm about American decline displays Nye's astonishing capacity to engage with the full range of challenges to American leadership."
Michael Ignatieff, Harvard Kennedy School
