I think that "World Order" is a worthwhile read for anyone remotely interested in history, political science or current events. Not sure why all the good reviews.

Kissinger is no historian, yet he skips happily through major historical events while missing all the nuances and subtleties, apparently to prove his thesis. Cherry-picking a few facts here and there might be ok for political rhetoric, but it is unacceptable as real scholarship.

Kissinger is doing no more than trying to imagine what a world order might look like and how the nations might get from here to there.

He understands especially the cognitive barrier born of the cardinal distinction between Western and non-Western thought. The West is committed to the notion that reality is external to the observer and knowledge defined by measurement and classification. Non-Western civilizations are committed to the notion that reality is internal to the observer and defined by convictions whether psychological, philosophical, or religious. It remains to be seen whether Westerners are correct in their assumption that non-Westerners will alter their cultural perceptions on the strength of science, technology, and prosperity.

But it is hard to imagine the emergence of world order without some kind of world convergence. But then he went to China β€” and met Chou Enlai, I interjected?

He might also have found a kindred spirit, because Central Europe and the Middle Kingdom are geopolitical cousins compared to which the United States is provincial and solipsistic.

My intuition tells me that the last task Henry Kissinger has set for himself is to persuade American elites to permit β€” yes, permit β€” the reconciliation of the American and Chinese world views through the mechanism of world order based on a European world view.

I first met Dr. Kissinger in when Penn sponsored, as part of its th anniversary celebration, a televised panel on the world after the Cold War, emceed by Ted Koppel. Americans and Russians alike, I said, should be dancing in the streets.

Kissinger listened and then issued a gentle rebuke to the effect that history always moves on, new challenges always await, and no victory is final. Just this week I came across in my research an article Kissinger had written in Foreign Affairs that made the same point back in To declare that the play will not go on is an absurdity. The play will go on either by means of the actors or by means of the spectators who mount the stage….

Both major political parties maintain that they work for a lasting peace, even if they differ about the best means of attaining it. But the owl of Minerva does not always wait until dusk, because Kissinger had already understood at age 33 that history never comes to an end.

Today, he would probably be the first to admit β€” indeed, to insist β€” that even if a world order could be designed according to some amalgam of Western and Chinese wisdom, that order would not last very long.

The problem with my gibe is that while it is true that non-state forces, and above all the Islamic State and al Qaeda, are responsible for many of the worst conflicts in the world, it is also true that major states, including Russia, China, Iran, and Saudi Arabia and the United States , are prepared to use coercion and force β€” often in those same conflicts β€” in a way that has not been true for generations.

We do live in an increasingly geopolitical world. So I began to examine the sources of my resistance. I am sorry to say this, but Henry Kissinger has me nailed.

The suppression of state competition in the aftermath of the Cold War, the sudden appearance of dangerous non-state actors, and the rise of a new set of global issues gave those who instinctively recoiled from the zero-sum formulations of power politics a reason to feel that the realist model had become archaic. Indeed, it was George W.

Bush who made the decisive break with state-centric thinking. Barack Obama came to office promising to call off that campaign β€” but not in the name of a restored realism. Obama believed that the salient issues were not interstate but global. Those collective goods required an unprecedented degree of cooperation. It was globalism, not terrorism that had superseded the old order. As I pointed out in an article earlier this year, Obama soon learned that other states β€” at least outside of that Kantian garden known as the European Union β€” did not want to be summoned to their better angels.Page 1 of 1 Start over Page 1 of 1.
