In his new book, Prof. Nye examines the changing nature of power in the global information age and argues that the story of American decline is simplistic and inaccurate. He contends that if the U.S. seems less powerful than it used to be, that may be because all states are less powerful than they were, relative to the power of individuals and non-state groups.
At this event, the author and this distinguished panel of experts discussed the book's insights and answered questions on a range of topics on American foreign policy, the critical international challenges of today's world, and how U.S. power can best be deployed to address them.
