Detail from book cover.

The "Asian Century" is even bigger than you think. Far greater than just China, the new Asian system taking shape is a multi-civilizational order spanning Saudi Arabia to Japan, Russia to Australia, Turkey to Indonesia—linking five billion people through trade, finance, infrastructure, and diplomatic networks that together represent 40 percent of global GDP.

There is no more important region of the world for us to better understand than Asia—and thus we cannot afford to keep getting Asia so wrong.

How exactly is the world being "Asianized"? Is the region returning to centuries-old patterns that thrived before European colonialism and American dominance?
