    2. **The formatting has been removed and divided by sentence** This book is about the transformation of the world structure caused by the rise of third-world powers such as China and India. For over five hundred years, since the 15th century, the principal actors involved in constructing a more international society have shifted. These shifts can be divided into three eras. The first era was the ‘rise of the western world’, which thrived from the 15th century until the late 18th century. It established the dominant status of European countries and stifled significant innovations which form the foundation of modern society, such as science or capitalism. It established the dominant status of the major European powers and stifled significant innovations which form the foundation of modern society, such as science and capitalism. The second period was that of American imperialism, which flourished from the end of the 19th century. The United States powerfully ruled international society in the fields of politics and economics, and other countries did not come close to the influence wielded by the US during that period. After that period, the current era, called “the rise of the rest”, arose. ‘The rise of the rest’ is a period characterized by remarkable economic growth which occurred around the world. Even the big economic crisis precipitated by the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy in 2008 could not abate worldwide GDP growth. In fact, both China and India marked over nine percent growth (the year after??) the recession. Following these Asian nations, two-thirds of African countries accomplished over 4 percent growth in 2006, 2007 and 2011. In addition, these economic successes in Asia and Africa have contributed to a reduction in (global??local??continental??) poverty. For example, the ratio of groups where individuals live on a dollar a day or less has fallen from 40 percent in 1981 to 12 percent in 2015. Although fifty countries in the world are still suffering from serious poverty, the others (including nations historically classified as undeveloped) are gradually getting themselves out of serious poverty. Actually, current international society has evolved to the point that nations in each region have grown in (economic?) strength. The difference between the current era and earlier eras is the lack of strong pillars, which has resulted from the context of power shifting from the US to other nations. One and a half centuries ago, global society was heavily centralized between various European alliances. After the world was bisected during the Cold War, the United States built a unipolar world. That transformation then leads to the current incarnation of international society. [[Was not totally sure what your sentence meant]] In the background of this change, there is the fact that the Unites States is losing its absolute authority in various fields such as industry and finance, while other nations are taking its place. Besides these nations, nongovernmental actors such as groups and individuals are playing their roles with more puissance. [[You might want to substitute another word for puissance, such as influence or muscle]] It is now obvious that the old regimes are being eroded, and the classic operation of national power is declining in influence. Under these circumstances, the author attempts to answer the following question through his book. “What will it mean to live in a post-American world?(P-5)
