In conversation with China expert, Jonathan Fenby, Oxford Professor of Modern China, Rana Mitter, and economist and broadcaster, Linda Yueh, the FTâ€™s Gideon Rachman, author of Easternisation: War and Peace in the Asian Century, outlines the challenge to Americaâ€™s supremacy by a troubled but rising China and other ambitious Asian powers, which have the potential to transform the whole world. The consequences could be calamitous. These four leading authorities on the Far East and international affairs, analyse the new world order.
Ian Morris has pessimistically observed that 'geopolitical shifts on the scale of Chinaâ€™s takeoff have always been accompanied by massive violence.' Taking in Russia and the Middle East', Jonathan Fenby describes Rachmanâ€™s book as 'the best survey of global affairs I have read for some time.'
