Product description

Review

A compelling warning ... It is hard to disagree with this advice from such a well-informed friend of the west (Martin Wolf Financial Times)

Sometimes you need a shock to wake you up. Has the West Lost it? (2018) is such a shock. The sheer concentrated force of this 91-page essay [...] is as unrelenting as it is astonishing . . . It's time we listened to Mahbubani. (Richard Horton The Lancet)

We should all think of it as the cold shower that is urgently needed to revive the West (Fareed Zakaria, author of 'The Post-American World')

It's a powerful, disputatious book . . . It's not comfortable reading, and it wasn't meant to be (Paul Kennedy, Director of International Security Studies and Professor of History at Yale University)

Kishore Mahbubani brings unrivaled experience and insight into strategizing where the West goes from here. A book that truly speaks to our tumultuous times (Ian Bremmer, President of Eurasia Group)

In the longer view, America's - and before that Europe's - dominance may come to be seen as a short aberration and the rise of China and other Asian nations as simply a reversion to the natural order of things. That at least is the key point of a provocatively titled book, Has the West Lost It?, by Kishore Mahbubani, a Singaporean academic and former diplomat. As many in America and Europe contemplate the dramatic changes to their world in the past few years, it's been getting a lot of attention. (Gerard Baker The Times)

Book Description

A powerful challenge to Western hubris from an internationally known opinion-maker.
