Author(s): Richard Haass
A World in Disarray examines the current world, how we got here, what will happen next, and what it will mean for us all. Great powers are losing sway to other entities and forces, and the past twenty-five years have seen a surprising unravelling of order. Haass argues the world needs an updated operating system - call it world order 2.0 - that takes into account new forces, challenges, and non-state actors. A World in Disarray is a lucid and incisive analysis of our shifting landscape.
