Summary
This second volume picks up in 1945 with a world irrevocably altered by World War II and a powerful, victorious United States. But new foes and challenges soon arose: the growing sphere of Communist influence, hostile dictatorships and unreliable socialist allies, the emergence of China as an economic contender, and the threat of world Islamification
Summary
Traces the rise of the United States as a global superpower from a conservative perspective, challenging popular views while offering insight into the country's influence on world politics, military affairs, and business practices
