Restless Continent : Wealth, Rivalry, and Asia's New Geopolitics (Hardcover) (Michael Wesley)
About this item
But surprisingly little hard thinking has been done about the future of Asia. Michael Wesley’s Restless Continent is the first book to examine the economic, social, political and strategic trends across the world’s largest continent, presenting a modern day roadmap for thinking about not only Asia’s future, but also how that future affects the entire world. Wesley examines the psychology of countries becoming newly rich and powerful, and explores the “corridors of blood”—the geography and politics of conflict. And finally, Restless Continent makes a case for how to avert a plunge into dispute, conflict, or even war.
Written for the general reader and policy specialist alike, Restless Continent is an agenda-shaping book at the intersection of foreign affairs and the unprecedented growth of the world’s most pivotal region.
