When China Rules the World

Author: Martin Jacques

We have barely begun to understand what life will be like when China rules the world. This book explains how that will come about and what will change.

Soon China will rule the world. But in doing so, it will not become more 'Western'.

Martin Jacques' groundbreaking book overturns conventional thinking about the ascendancy of China, showing how its impact will not just be economic, but cultural. As China's powerful civilization reasserts itself, it will signal the end of the global dominance of the Western nation?state, and the start of a future of 'contested modernity'. This profound, far?sighted book explains for the first time the deeper meaning of China's rise to power.

Book Reviews

By far the best book on China to have been published in many years, Jacques's comprehensive and richly detailed analysis will be an indispensable resource for anyone who wants to understand contemporary China.' John Gray, New Statesman
