The US, Russia and China

Power has been compared to the weather: people discuss it all the
time, but very few really understand it. This book seeks to
demystify this complex concept by providing students with an
incisive and engaging introduction to the shifting configurations
of power in the contemporary global order.

Drawing on the work of leading international relations scholars,
philosophers and sociologists, the analysis goes beyond simplistic
views of power as material capability, focusing also on its
neglected social dimensions. These are developed and explored
through a detailed examination of the changing international role,
status and capacities of the United States, Russia and China since
the end of the Cold War. Far from achieving multipolarity, the book
concludes that the contemporary world remains essentially unipolar;
America having moved to correct the mistakes of George W. Bush's
first term in office, while China and Russia have, in different
ways, limited their own abilities to challenge American
primacy.


This book will be essential reading for students of
international relations and politics, as well as anyone with an
interest in the shifting balance of power in the global system.
