Fareed Zakaria wrote an update to his book The Post-American World in 2011 called The Post-American World 2.0. He published an excerpt of his book on NPR and was interviewed on Fresh Air about it.
For our study of "diminishing state power," I had students write an update to his update. We then went on a social media campaign to try to get him to respond to the students' findings.
The students were motivated by the real-world application of this assignment and did a great job with the material.
Sadly, he has not responded yet, but I am not giving up.
