Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Provocative...a fascinating account. -Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

In this prodigiously researched and far-reaching book, Martin Jacques presents a groundbreaking look at how China's economic ascendancy will alter the balance of global power. Drawing extensively on Chinese history, he reveals how an increasingly powerful China will seek to shape the world in its own image: the old tributary system will resurface in a modern form, contemporary ideas of racial hierarchy will be redrawn, and China's age-old sense of superiority will reassert itself.
