The end of the Cold War and the emergence of “unipolar configuration” have generated considerable debate about how to explain a great power balancing position absence which was against the United States power. The concentration of almost hegemonic power in a country always triggers a counter- balancing coalition of other great powers. This is an iron law of balance of power theory. But why any counterbalancing power is not rising against the United States? Why other powers have not responded against almost hegemonic power of the United States despite what is anticipated by balance of power theory? The paper is of the view that in a nuclear world the goal of balance- i.e. the survival of states-can be achieved under a unipolar system and this configuration prevents the formation of a balance of power system.
