In today’s world, both states and networked actors can impact international outcomes directly and, by influencing states, indirectly. The result of the new calculus is a complex, adaptive system, a world of diverse actors interacting with one another in many different ways and adapting to whatever circumstances arise as a result of that interaction. Leading foreign policy thinker Anne-Marie Slaughter presents how policymakers in the United States as well as in Japan can better understand how to respond more effectively to the world’s changing tides—from the Arab Spring to power shifts in East Asia. From 2009 to 2011 Dr. Slaughter served as Director of Policy Planning for the U.S. Department of State, the first woman to hold that position.
