Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"A sober, nuanced assessment of the opportunities and dangers that Asia's rise presents.... refreshing."--Washington Post Book World

Closely intertwined by their fierce competition for influence, markets, resources, and strategic advantage, China, India, and Japan are shaping the world to come. Former Economist editor-in-chief Bill Emmott explores the ways in which their sometimes bitter rivalry will play out over the next decade — in business, global politics, military competition, and the environment — and reveals the efforts of the United States to turn the situation to its advantage as these three powerful nations vie for dominance. This revised and updated edition of Rivals is an indispensable guide for anyone wishing to understand Asia's swiftly changing political and economic scene.

 
"For ... some much-needed nuance--look no further than Bill Emmott's Rivals."--Wall Street Journal
 
"[R]iveting ... sober and reasoned."--Business Today
 
BILL EMMOTT is a writer, speaker and consultant on global affairs, with an expertise in Asia.

Synopsis:

The former editor in chief of the Economist returns to the territory of his bestselling book The Sun Also Sets to lay out a fresh analysis of the growing rivalry between China, India, and Japan — what it will mean for America, the global economy, and the twenty-first-century world.

Synopsis:

The former editor in chief of the Economist returns to the territory of his best-selling book The Sun Also Sets to lay out an entirely fresh analysis of the growing rivalry between China, India, and Japan and what it will mean for America, the global economy, and the twenty-first-century world.

Though books such as The World Is Flat and China Shakes the World consider them only as individual actors, Emmott argues that these three political and economic giants are closely intertwined by their fierce competition for influence, markets, resources, and strategic advantage. Rivals explains and explores the ways in which this sometimes bitter rivalry will play out over the next decade—in business, global politics, military competition, and the environment—and reveals the efforts of the United States to manipulate and benefit from this rivalry. Identifying the biggest risks born of these struggles, Rivals also outlines the ways these risks can and should be managed by all of us.
