"Ehsan Ahrari has written a brilliant and insightful work that details the emerging, complex world of changing power bases. He artfully proposes a course for navigating this challenging new world that our political leaders should consider. The Great Powers versus the Hegemon is a must read for those who want to understand the new world order that is upon us." --General Anthony C. Zinni USMC (Retired), Former Commander US CENTCOM"Ehsan Ahrari has done a superb job in this book, providing a realistic and stark picture of how the global economic crisis affects great power relations in the first decade of the 21st century. This is an excellent book to focus the minds of strategic thinkers and policy makers on the security climate they face." --Larry M. Wortzel, Commissioner, US-China Economic and Security Review Commission
