Rivals: How the power struggle between China, India and Japan will shape our next decade

Rivals: How the power struggle between China, India and Japan will shape our next decade

by Bill Emmott (Author)


The world is changing, as political and economic power shift further towards Asia. In this penetrating book Bill Emmott shows the ways in which our future will be dominated not by one, but by three Asian giants - China, India and a newly resurgent Japan. How will competition between the emergent great powers in the East affect the West? What will the potential benefits, tensions and danger zones be? Emmott, former editor of the "Economist", is one of the world's most authoritative international commentators. In "Rivals" he has written the essential book for understanding how this new power game will shape the twenty-first century.
