This is definitive guide to Asia’s global influence in the 21st century.
The “Asian Century” is even bigger than we think it is, going beyond China and now spans the Arab Gulf states through to Japan, Russia and Australia.
With the rapid growth of India and China’s rebuilding of the Silk Roads, Asia is returning to the stable multipolar order that existed long before European colonialism and American dominance.
Dr. Parag Khanna’s latest book The Future is Asian presents this much larger Asian reality through detailed maps, data and analysis of all of Asia’s major markets and their combined impact on global economy, society and governance.
Large but dormant societies from Iran to Indonesia are finally emerging, teeming with young and urban, ambitious and entrepreneurial youth, while from Saudi Arabia to Vietnam, privatization is unlocking a new wave of growth. Asians are sharing economic and governance models as never before, and their confident outward push is reshaping daily life in North America and Europe, South America and Africa.
Due to be published in Spring 2019, Khanna provides essential guidance for executives as they look to hedge their China exposure and capture the next big commercial opportunities from real estate and retail to finance and technology. With his intimate knowledge of Asian history and geopolitics, he also paints a compelling vision of a balanced global system of shared responsibilities across America, Europe and Asia.
His previous books include: Technocracy in America: Rise of the Info-State, Connectography: Mapping the Future of Global Civilisation, Hybrid Reality: Thriving in the Emerging Human-Technology Civilisation, How to Run the World: Charting a Course to the Next Renaissance and The Second World: How Emerging Powers are Redefining Global Competition in the 21st Century.
