Publisher's Summary

George Friedman, founder of Stratfor, has become a leading expert in geopolitical forecasting, sought after for his thoughtful assessments of current trends and near-future events. In The Next 100 Years, Friedman turns his eye on the future. Drawing on a profound understanding of history and geopolitical patterns dating back to the Roman Empire, he shows that we are now, for the first time in half a millennium, experiencing the dawn of a new historical cycle.


What the Critics Say

"A unique combination of cold-eyed realism and boldly confident fortune-telling....Whether all of the visions in Friedman's crystal ball actually materialize, they certainly make for engrossing entertainment." ( Publishers Weekly)

Interesting predictions

Summarised the geopolitical context of America over the next 100 years. Military and technological developments, along with international tension points go along way to visualising vividly the possibilities in our near future. Fun and easy to follow.

No structured assessment - cognitive bias and blind to Asia

A disappointingly weak argument for US dominance ignoring economic or demographic realities. Waste of time.
