"Niblett manages to assemble a book that is surprisingly cohesive despite its vast scope . . . the immediacy, though, gives the book a journalistic quality." (The International Spectator, 2010)
Robin Niblett is the Director of Chatham House. He was previously Executive Vice President at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington from 2001 to 2006.
As President Barack Obama attempts to renew America's global leadership, scholars affiliated with Chatham House offer expert perspectives from outside the United States on its ability to continue to play an international leading role. Looking at a range of themes and regions, their analyses provide a challenging basis for rethinking America's international leadership.
‘America and a Changed World speaks compellingly to the necessity of an intelligent American foreign policy more attuned to the realities of the twenty-first century.’ – — Zbigniew Brzezinski, Professor of American foreign policy, School of Advanced International Studies, Johns Hopkins University and former National Security Advisor to President Jimmy Carter ‘At a time of great uncertainty about the future of US global leadership, America and a Changed World offers a series of timely and important insights into the scale of the challenge facing the Obama administration. As such, the book will serve as a very valuable reference point for students of US foreign policy and policy practitioners alike.’ – — Joschka Fischer, former Minister of Foreign Affairs of Germany ‘This wide-ranging collection of probing essays from Chatham House explores the daunting obstacles to the reassertion of American leadership in a changed world. The provisional answers it suggests are as sobering as they are persuasive.’ – — Timothy Garton Ash, Professor of European Studies, University of Oxford, and Isaiah Berlin Professorial Fellow, St Antony's College, Oxford ‘American leadership of the global order is unavoidable. No other power can step into its shoes, yet. Yet while the world cries out for American leadership, it also cries out for smarter and more sophisticated leadership of a more complex world. This book could not be more timely. It provides wise counsel where it is needed most.’ – — Kishore Mahbubani, Dean, Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, National University of Singapore
