Product description


"A masterly account ... the best survey of global affairs I have read for some time … Rachman’s book offers a first-rate primer to the world in which we live." (Jonathan Fenby Sunday Times)

"In his timely new book, Easternisation, Gideon Rachman articulates a clear and persuasive idea… [His] flair for rich anecdotes, clever writing, strong analysis and original insight are impressive… Easternisation hits its mark, with a wide range of arguments and prognostications that scholars and policymakers must contemplate as we consider the coming Asian century." (Kurt Campbell Financial Times)

"Rachman’s theme takes him on a most interesting and stimulating tour du monde. His discussion of the impact of China’s rise on south-east Asia, contrary to the great majority of accounts, is subtle and nuanced… A most informative, readable and interesting piece of work that deserves a wide readership." (Martin Jacques Guardian)

"A brilliant and engrossing account of the emerging power struggles of the twenty-first century. Gideon Rachman is one of the few journalists with a truly global perspective. His access to world leaders from Beijing to Washington provides a unique perspective on international politics." (Andrew Roberts)

"A superb account… An absorbing and sobering study." (Stephen Robinson Daily Telegraph)

"We are witness in this very decade to one of the greatest geopolitical shifts in the global power balances … This tale has many chroniclers and numerous exponents, but by far the most insightful, sensible, and compelling is EASTERNISATION. This really is one of those works where you can say you wished our political leaders would read and ponder upon its great implications." (Paul Kennedy)

"[[Easternisation is] elegantly written and hugely informed… [A] cogent and wise book." (Michael Burleigh Literary Review)

"The West is in decline, the East is on the rise. Like too few others, Gideon Rachman grasps this fundamental and over-arching reality of our time, without which we cannot understand either the present or the future ... A highly readable and perceptive account of this irresistible truth." (Martin Jacques, author of WHEN CHINA RULES THE WORLD)

"[An] accomplished book." (Shashank Joshi Prospect)

"What this book is really about, and is very good at describing, is the growing impact of China on its neighbours, on the world" (The Economist)

Book Description

The West's domination of world politics is coming to a close. The flow of wealth and power is turning from West to East and a new era of global instability has begun.
