The critically important, agenda-shaping examination of Asian economic, social, and political trends in Asia??"an entire continent developing at a rate never seen before.
The world has never seen economic development as rapid or significant as Asia??s during recent decades. Home to 60% of the world??s population, this restless continent will soon produce more than half of the world??s economic output and consume more energy than the rest of the globe combined.
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 it affects the entire world.
Wesley is one of the world's leading experts on Asian and international affairs and examines the psychology of countries becoming newly rich and powerful, and explores the “corridors of blood”??"the geography and politics of conflict and he makes a case for how to avert a plunge into dispute, conflict, or even war.
There is therefore no more important challenge to policymakers, academics, and the public then understanding the drivers of Asia's new geopolitics. These are the subjects of Restless Continent.
