Is This The End of the American Century?

This site features updates, analysis, discussion and comments related to the theme of my book published by Rowman & Littlefield in 2008 (hardbound) and 2009 (paperbound).

The Book

The End of the American Century documents the interrelated dimensions of American social, economic, political and international decline, marking the end of a period of economic affluence and world dominance that began with World War II. The war on terror and the Iraq War exacerbated American domestic weakness and malaise, and its image and stature in the world community. Dynamic economic and political powers like China and the European Union are steadily challenging and eroding US global influence. This global shift will require substantial adjustments for U.S. citizens and leaders alike.

After the American Century

David Nye, a Professor of American History in Denmark, is the co-author (with Thomas Johansen) of a book entitled The American Century: A Chronology and Orientation, and has a blog of his own called After the American Century. Both his book and his blog have some similar themes to The End of the American Century. The blog, especially, provides an interesting perspective on some of these issues from outside the United States.
