The Book explores a rather interesting aspect of technological leadership and International Economic relations from the standpoint of the dominant State. It seeks to trace the rise of the High Technological community and its impact on policy as relates United States overall approach towards the rising powers, namely India and China. The critical setting discussed is that of the Information Technology sector and how the issues generate “shared interests” between the HTC and the political system. The key areas discussed are high skilled migration, fostering international educational exchange through students and the globalisation of research and development networks to build a narrative surrounding globalisation of research and development. Further, it demonstrates how the level of openness in United States Policy is at best, a conflicted proposition. The review follows the framework provided, i.e., Power Resources theory within International Relations.
