Samenvatting

In the 19th century, the world was Europeanized. In the 20th century, it was Americanized. Now, in the 21st century, the world is being Asianized.

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. China has taken a lead in building the new Silk Roads across Asia, but it will not lead it alone. Rather, Asia is rapidly returning to the centuries-old patterns of commerce, conflict, and cultural exchange that thrived long before European colonialism and American dominance. Asians will determine their own future—and as they collectively assert their interests around the world, they will determine ours as well.

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. Asia's complexity has led to common misdiagnoses: Western thinking on Asia conflates the entire region with China, predicts imminent World War III around every corner, and regularly forecasts debt-driven collapse for the region's major economies. But in reality, the region is experiencing a confident new wave of growth led by younger societies from India to the Philippines, nationalist leaders have put aside territorial disputes in favor of integration, and today's infrastructure investments are the platform for the next generation of digital innovation.

If the nineteenth century featured the Europeanization of the world, and the twentieth century its Americanization, then the twenty-first century is the time of Asianization. From investment portfolios and trade wars to Hollywood movies and university admissions, no aspect of life is immune from Asianization. With America's tech sector dependent on Asian talent and politicians praising Asia's glittering cities and efficient governments, Asia is permanently in our nation's consciousness. We know this will be the Asian century. Now we finally have an accurate picture of what it will look like.

Recensie(s)

'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 '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 '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 * '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 pf Aadhaar (UIDAI) 'When our grandchildren want to understand how, in the early twenty-first century, Asia came to occupy - or rather, reoccupy - the cultural and economic centre of the planet, they will read the magisterial work of Parag Khanna' -- Paul Salopek, National Geographic Fellow '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 twenty-first century is the century of Asia. I suggest you read this book even if you are 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 'Offers a comprehensive worldview from an Asian perspective . . . Khanna is thorough and clear, offering abundant food for thought' * Kirkus * 'A well-written, important book' * Australian Financial Review * 'The Future Is Asian challenges the way westerners view the continent . . . As Khanna lays out his argument and vision for the Asia's future role in global geopolitics, it is almost impossible not to be persuaded by his school of thought' * City A.M. * 'The Future Is Asian offers a valuable and thoroughly researched analysis' * Wall Street Journal * '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 * 'In an authoritative book which may well become a standard reference . . . Parag Khanna casts the net wider to deliver a compelling argument that Asia - rather than merely China - is the current and future lodestar for the global economy. Of Asia's nearly 5bn people, 3.5bn are not Chinese' -- James Kynge * Financial Times *
