Described by Esquire as "the most influential foreign policy adviser of his generation," columnist and CNN Host Fareed Zakaria is widely respected for his ability to spot economic and political trends around the world. His national bestseller "The Post-American World" is about the "rise of the rest"-the growth of China, India, Brazil and other countries-and what this means for the future. His previous bestseller "The Future of Freedom" has been translated into 20 languages and called "a work of tremendous originality and insight" by The Washington Post. Dr. Zakaria oversees all of Newsweek's editions abroad, and his cover stories and columns reach more than 25 million readers weekly. He also is the host of a weekly international news program "Fareed Zakaria GPS," which airs on CNN. Born in India and educated at Yale and Harvard, he has served as an analyst for ABC News, a roundtable member on "This Week with George Stephanopoulos," and host of "Foreign Exchange" on PBS. One of Jon Stewart's favorite guests on "The Daily Show," Zakaria has also appeared on "Charlie Rose," "The NewsHour" and "BBC World News" and has written for The New Yorker and The New York Times. His numerous honors include the Overseas Press Club Award and the Deadline Club Award for Best Columnist.
