#Reading Easternisation

The West is in decline, Asia on the rise. So much so good: this common knowledge has been repeated again and again for decades, and sure enough reality has started to catch up. But despite economic data and brinkmanship in the South China Sea, it’s easy to forget that Asia is not China, and that Bejing’s ambitions are not shared by its neighbors. With the lucid prose typical of all Financial Times’ journalists we’ve mentioned on this column, Rachman’s Easternisation is a series of interviews and testimonies painting a realistic image of future relations between the US-centered order and China.
