With the dissolution of the Soviet Union on December 26, 1991, the United States clearly became the only Superpower in the world. Having triumphed over Communism, the United States was confident it could export its vision of liberal democracy, in which individual rights and freedom under the rule of law are protected, to the rest of the world. The United States preoccupation with Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan for the past 30 years to instill a measure of democracy in these countries allowed Russia and China time to strengthen their positions in the world. The book describes the uphill battle the US now wages against Russia and China for world domination.
