In the 19th century, the world was Europeanized; in the 20th, it was Americanized. In the 21st century, the world is being Asianized, advises foreign policy savant Parag Khanna. The new Asian system taking shape spans Saudi Arabia and Japan, Russia and Australia, Turkey and Indonesia, linking five billion people through trade, finance, infrastructure, and diplomatic networks. China may have taken a lead in building new Silk Roads, but all of Asia is rapidly returning to centuries-old patterns of commerce, conflict, and cultural exchange that thrived long before European and American intrusion. Khanna shows us how we keep getting Asia so wrong, and what we can expect the Asian future to actually look like.
