The author of the review emphasizes the multifaceted character of the book and its large geographical coverage. At the same time E.Bazhanov analyzes problems of world politics mainly through the prism of Russia’s interests. A special attention is paid to the analysis of processes of globalization and formation of modern world’s multipolar structure. The author reasonably justifies the delusiveness of the attempts to constitute a global American hegemony (“Pax Americana”).

The author of the review highly appraises the first volume of the three-volume edition E.Bazhanov, a researcher and at the same time an expert in the sphere of international relations. Providing comments on the chapters of the book concerning the collapse of the former system of international relations based on the balance of power between the two superpowers, he particularly makes common cause with the Bazhanov’s doubt concerning whether the US is capable of turning the world into a unipolar system. What for Russia, according to the author, in order to solve the problems it faces the country should consolidate its grip on the flexible and balanced foreign policy, implying cooperation in all directions – with the West, the East and the South.
