The Geostrategic Triad
December 1, 2000
"Brzezinski's analysis is testament to the fact that even in today's real-time decisionmaking environment, it is possible to formulate and prosecute a strategy based on a forward-looking, interdisciplinary approach."--John J. Hamre, President & CEO, CSIS
Global stability in the early twenty-first century will be conditiioned largely by how the United States handles its relations with China, Europe, and Russia--a "geostrategic triad." Thus, the United States needs a well-defined strategy to manage the two "Eurasian power triangles": the United States, Japan, and China, and the United States, Europe, and Russia. With this work, Zbigniew Brzezinski offers a comprehensive geostrategic road map for such U.S. engagement.
Zbigniew Brzezinski is a former national security adviser to the president. He is also a CSIS counselor and trustee. His many books include The Grand Chessboard: American Priamcy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives (BasicBooks, 1997) and The Grand Failure: The Birth and Death of Communism in the Twentieth Century (Scribner, 1989).
