The Return of the Great Powers, New America online

[ONLINE] – The Return of the Great Powers

The fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 dawned what Francis Fukuyama called “The End of History.” Three decades later, the global order as we long have known it is now gone. Powerful nations are determined to assert dominance on the world stage. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is a part of it, but in reality, this power struggle impacts every corner of our world—from Helsinki to Beijing, from Australia to the North Pole. In his new book The Return of the Great Powers, CNN Chief National Security Analyst Jim Sciutto, marshals globe-spanning, exclusive interviews with dozens of political, military, and intelligence leaders, defining our times as a return of great power conflict, “a definitive break between the post–Cold War era and an entirely new and uncertain one.”

Join New America’s Future Security Program as they welcome Jim Sciutto to discuss his new book The Return of the Great Powers. Sciutto is CNN’s chief national security analyst and anchor of CNN Newsroom on Max, airing Monday through Friday. He has reported from more than fifty countries across the globe, including dozens of assignments from inside Iraq, Afghanistan, and Iran. Among the honors Sciutto’s work has earned are Emmy Awards, the Edward R. Murrow Award, the George Polk Award, the Dupont-Columbia Award, and the White House Correspondent’s Association’s Merriman Smith Award for excellence in presidential coverage. Sciutto is also the bestselling author of The Shadow War.

The conversation will be moderated by New America Vice President and Arizona State University Professor of Practice Peter Bergen.
