Publisher Description

China fragments, a new Cold War with Russia, Mexcio challenges U.S., the new great powers Turkey, Poland and JapanThe Next 100 Years is a fascinating, eye-opening and often shocking look at what lies ahead for the U.S. and the world from one of our most incisive futurists.

In his provocative book, George Friedman turns his eye on the future—offering a lucid, highly readable forecast of the changes we can expect around the world during the twenty-first century. He explains where and why future wars will erupt (and how they will be fought), which nations will gain and lose economic and political power, and how new technologies and cultural trends will alter the way we live in the new century.
The Next 100 Years draws on a fascinating exploration of history and geopolitical patterns dating back hundreds of years. Friedman shows that we are now, for the first time in half a millennium, at the dawn of a new era—with changes in store, including:

• The U.S.-Jihadist war will conclude—replaced by a second full-blown cold war with Russia.
• China will undergo a major extended internal crisis, and Mexico will emerge as an important world power.
• A new global war will unfold toward the middle of the century between the United States and an unexpected coalition from Eastern Europe, Eurasia, and the Far East; but armies will be much smaller and wars will be less deadly.
• Technology will focus on space—both for major military uses and for a dramatic new energy resource that will have radical environmental implications.
• The United States will experience a Golden Age in the second half of the century.

Written with the keen insight and thoughtful analysis that has made George Friedman a renowned expert in geopolitics and forecasting, The Next 100 Years presents a fascinating picture of what lies ahead.

Futuota ,

Fun read...

Fun read. The only issue I had was the future intentions of Japan. After living in and around Japanese culture for the last decade, I can almost see no scenario in which Japan would even attempt to make an attempt for war against USA. Would recommend.

Edutainment

I bought the audiobook and listened to it 3 times so far. It's a refreshing perspective on politics, and a fascinating narrative on the interests of nations. Worth a read.

Fascinating and plausible!

This is the best political/futurist book I've read. George, self admittedly, might not get all the details right, however his predictions are all plausible. If you are interested in geopolitics this is a must read?

Also there are "battlestars" in the book!!!
