The world is changing, as political and economic power shift further towards Asia. In this penetrating book Bill Emmott shows the ways in which our future will be dominated not by one, but by three Asian giants - China, India and a newly resurgent Japan. How will competition between the emergent great powers in the East affect the West? What will the potential benefits, tensions and danger zones be? Emmott, former editor of the Economist, is one of the world's most authoritative international commentators. In Rivals he has written the essential book for understanding how this new power game will shape the twenty-first century.

"A sober, nuanced assessment of the opportunities and dangers that Asia's rise presents.... refreshing."--Washington Post Book World
Closely intertwined by their fierce competition for influence, markets, resources, and strategic advantage, China, India, and Japan are shaping the world to come. Former Economist editor-in-chief Bill Emmott explores the ways in which their sometimes bitter rivalry will play out over the next decade -- in business, global politics, military competition, and the environment -- and reveals the efforts of the United States to turn the situation to its advantage as these three powerful nations vie for dominance.
