Taking the long historical view, Hunt demonstrates that wealth, confidence, and leadership were key elements to Americas ascent. In an analytic narrative that illuminates the past rather than indulges in political triumphalism, he provides crucial insights into the countrys problematic place in the world today. Hunt charts Americas rise to global power from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries to a culminating multilayered dominance achieved in the mid-twentieth century. He examines how the United States remade great power relations, fashioned limits for the third world, and shaped our current international economic and cultural order. Hunt concludes by addressing current issues, such as how durable American power really is and what options remain for Americas future.
