This book states that the prevailing international situation is quite different from that which existed in earlier times. At present, there is no major competition among different countries of the world regarding capture of territory or power. The United States is focusing on developing better relationships with other countries despite its military and political dominance in the global scenario. The emergence of other global powers has resulted in significant changes in the dynamic geopolitical scenario. The manner in which developing countries, Russia, and Japan continue to grow and retain their supremacy and international position will determine how the United States reacts to these developments and prepares policies accordingly.

Keywords:   international situation, United States, developing countries, political dominance, global scenario
