This overarching narrative drew me into the book, as Khanna laid out his view of a 21st century world no longer dominated by one nation. He asserts that the 21st century world order will no longer have the USA at the top of the heap, but have three dominant superpowers essentially sharing a delicate balance of power: the United States, China, and the European Union (the “big three”).
The driving force behind this reorganization of world power is the struggle for control of energy and natural resources in regions of the world like the Middle East, Latin America, and Eastern Europe. The three superpowers are continuously in conflict over control of these resources, and geo-politics, combined with how the powers treat and deal with the nations who possess those natural resources. Khanna gives the reader much information about the political value of such nations as Algeria, Azerbaijan, Venezuela, Indonesia and Tajikstan, and the role they have to play in the geo-political game of chess.
