Guide Description


Source:  Center for Security Policy

“Over the past decade, rivalry has resurged, and it is intensifying with every passing month.  Russia followed up its annexation of Crimea, aggression in Ukraine, and military intervention in Syria with an audacious and covert political intervention in elections in the United Sates and Europe. China dissolved its political system of shared power in favor of unbridled power for one man in perpetuity, used coercive measures toward seizing control of the South China Sea, and covertly interferes in the domestic affairs of not only its neighbors but also Europe and the United States”.  In this guide you will read about the great power countries, what position the United States holds among the great power countries, and . the areas of competition or conflict of the 21st century.
