							According to even the most conservative estimates, China will overtake the  United States as the world's largest economy by 2027 and will ascend to the  position of world economic leader by 2050. But the full repercussions of  China's ascendancy-for itself and the rest of the globe-have been surprisingly  little explained or understood. In this far-reaching and original  investigation, Martin Jacques offers provocative answers to some of the most  pressing questions about China's growing place on the world stage.This is the  first book to fully conceive of and explain the upheaval that China's  ascendance will cause and the realigned global power structure it will create.

A convincing economic, political and cultural analysis of waning Western dominance and the rise of China and a new paradigm of modernity. Jacques (The Politics of Thatcherism) takes the pulse of the nation poised to become, by virtue of its scale and staggering rate of growth, the biggest market in the world…As comprehensive as it is compelling, this brilliant audio book is crucial listening for anyone interested in understanding where the we are and where we are going. - Publishers Weekly - Starred Review
