Product description


"A foreign policy whiz kid."--The New York Times Book Review

"Understanding the global economy in this century means above all understanding that it is likely to be an Asian Century. Parag Khanna's important book provides a rich perspective going well beyond the economic statistics. Everyone concerned with the future of the global economy should consider its arguments."--Lawrence H. Summers, Former Secretary of the Treasury, Former Director of the National Economic Council, and Harvard President Emeritus.

"The 21st century is the century of Asia. I suggest you read this book, even if you're already aware!"--Jim Rogers, International Investor and author of Street Smarts: Adventures on the Road and in the Markets

"Khanna illuminates the global tectonic shift to Asia--but argues provocatively that a rising China will be entangled in a multi-polar region."--Graham T. Allison, Professor, Harvard Kennedy School and author of Destined for War

"Parag Khanna's magisterial work weaves a powerful story where business, technology, globalization and geopolitics are intertwined. This is a must read for anyone who wants to understand the role of Asia in shaping the future of the world."--Nandan Nilekani, Co-founder and Chairman of Infosys, Founding Chairman of Aadhaar (UIDAI)

"In The Future is Asian, Parag Khanna paints a vibrant and multi-faceted picture of the economic, political and cultural dynamics shaping Asia and the world more broadly. This is a thought-provoking work that deserves to be read by practitioners, scholars and general readers alike."--The Hon. Kevin Rudd, 26th Prime Minister of Australia and President, Asia Society Policy Institute

"For most of recorded history, Asia was the economic, technological and cultural centre of the world. From that perspective, the last 500 years of Western dominance almost appear an aberration. This book imagines what reprising the lead role would look like for Asia, and what it means for the rest of the world. An indispensable book for the 'Asian century'."--Tony Fernandes, Founder and CEO, Air Asia

"A comprehensive worldview from an Asian perspective . . . Khanna enlists his considerable global experience and education to elegantly lay out the vast range and enormous potential of what he calls the Asian system of moving beyond geography and embracing alliances, institutions, infrastructure, trade, investment, culture and other patterns. . . . Khanna begins with a dazzling distillation of the history of the world from an Asian perspective. . . . Thorough and clear, offering abundant food for thought."--Kirkus Reviews

"Asia is vast, bustling and rapidly becoming an integrated, world-dominating region, according to this sprawling geo-economic study. . . . Khanna's wealth of statistics, deep knowledge, and lucid prose make for a stimulating overview of the rising colossus."--Publishers Weekly

"An upbeat examination of a changing 'Greater Asia' . . . Eurasia's future is likely to be more ductile than fixed and hegemonic. In this new world order, actions still lead to reactions." --The Economist
