Conventional wisdom holds that the United States is the world's last remaining superpower, a claim based mainly on its enormous military muscle. In this important and challenging new book John McCormick rejects the notion of US dominance and argues instead that it must now compete for influence with a new breed of superpower: the European Union. As well as being the world's biggest capitalist marketplace and the world's biggest trading power, McCormick argues, the European Union has also become the world's most effective champion of democracy and capitalism, a compelling example of the possibilities of civilian power, and a challenger to America's international cultural dominance. Europe is much better adapted to the needs of a 21st century superpower and its emergence as the leading competitor to the United States in a new post-cold war bipolar international order poses a fundamental challenge to the way we think about power.
