Kishore Mahbubani's timely polemic argues passionately for the West to cease imposing its ideology on the world and intervening in the affairs of other nations. Mahbubani examines the West's greatest follies of recent times- the humiliation of Russia at the end of the Cold War, which led to the rise of Putin; and the invasion of Iraq after 9/11, which destabilised the Middle East. For the West to maintain a key international role, Mahbubani warns, it must recognise its changing status and seek to influence rather than dominate. Has The West Lost It? examines the myths and self-delusions of Western power with an outsider's critical eye.
