THE DRAGON AND THE ELEPHANT - China, India and the New World Order

These books are in great used condition; small amount of shelf wear (scuffed corners), may have name written inside. Good, clean pages and cover. Usually retails at £15.

Blurb on the back of the book says:

Global geopolitical power is shifting. By 2050 the three most powerful countries on earth will be China, India and the United States. As the world rapidly tilts eastwards, new alliances will be formed and new rules will be set. Only those who have understood the new world order will be equipped to face these new challenges. The Dragon and the Elephant is an accessible and engaging guide to these changes, written by the Economics Editor of the Sunday Times.

To explain the rise of the Asian giants, and assess the implications for the rest of the world, David Smith examines the questions he has heard most often. How did they do it? Is their growth sustainable? How will other countries such as Britain cope?

How aggressive a superpower will China be? How did it come to have an economic lock over America? What about India? Will it turn the economic tables on Britain, its old imperial master, in the way America did? The book tells us which way the wind is blowing and how it will affect us all.

Most of us have wondered whether we should be worried or hopeful. At last here is a book to help you make up your mind, a book that will leave you knowing more about what to expect: the opportunities and the pitfalls, and the ten ways China and India will and won’t change the world.
