Leonard believes that what is the case for Europe is also true globally. But Europe is not a universal exemplar: it is a specific case and a particular experience.
While the postwar decline of the nation-state has certainly been true for Europe, in East Asia - home to a third of the world's population - nation-building has been a crucial pre-condition for the remarkable success of the Asian tigers, from China at one extreme to smaller countries such as Malaysia at the other. It is thoroughly misleading to see East Asia through the prism of Europe. Leonard is certainly right to suggest that the European Union has its imitators - most notably Mercosur and Asean.
But he is wrong to believe that these kinds of regional groupings are destined to become the dominant mode of the future. For sure the EU will continue to play a major global role, but the other most likely candidates as future global powers - the United States, China and India - are all nation-states.
Indeed the rise of giant, continental-sized countries, namely China and India, suggest that the nation-state, in a new and distinctive form, far from being eclipsed, will actually become more central.
In this context, Leonard's discussion of China can only be described as bizarre. Stay informed and spot emerging risks and opportunities with independent global reporting, expert commentary and analysis you can trust.
