The Rise and Fall of the Great Powers: Economic Change and Military Conflict from to , by Paul Kennedy , first published in , explores the politics and economics of the Great Powers from to and the reason for their decline. Kennedy argues that the strength of a Great Power can be properly measured only relative to other powers, and he provides a straightforward and persuasively argued thesis: Great Power ascendancy over the long term or in specific conflicts correlates strongly to available resources and economic durability; military overstretch and a concomitant relative decline are the consistent threats facing powers whose ambitions and security requirements are greater than their resource base can provide for. He concludes that declining countries can experience greater difficulties in balancing their preferences for guns, butter and investments. The "military conflict" referred to in the book's subtitle is therefore always examined in the context of "economic change.

The Rise and Fall of the Great Powers
Almost 30 years ago, Yale historian Paul Kennedy touched an American nerve. Great powers, in order to remain great powers, had a task that was simple to understand but difficult to execute: to balance wealth and their economic base with their military power and strategic commitments. These states therefore faced a constant triple tension between investment, defense and consumption. This brief reflection on what it all meant for the United States led to the book getting translated into 23 languages, and got Kennedy invited to testify before Congress. The salience of this argument for an anxious superpower was strong.
