Five billion people, two-thirds of the world's mega-cities, one-third of the global economy, two-thirds of global economic growth, thirty of the Fortune 100, six of the ten largest banks, eight of the ten largest armies, five nuclear powers, massive technological innovation, the newest crop of top-ranked universities. Asia is also the world's most ethnically, linguistically and culturally diverse region of the planet, eluding any remotely meaningful generalization beyond the geographic label itself. Even for Asians, Asia is dizzying to navigate.

Whether you gauge by demography, geography, economy or any other metric, Asia is already the present - and it is certainly the future. It is for this reason that we cannot afford to continue to get Asia so wrong. THE FUTURE IS ASIAN accurately shows Asia from the inside-out, telling the story of how this mega-region is coming together and reshaping the entire planet in the process.

In an authoritative book which may well become a standard reference . . . Parag Khanna casts the net wider to deliver a compelling argument that Asia - rather than merely China - is the current and future lodestar for the global economy. Of Asia's nearly 5bn people, 3.5bn are not Chinese - Financial Times An upbeat examination of a changing Greater Asia . . . Eurasia's future is likely to be more ductile than fixed and hegemonic. In this new world order, actions still lead to reactions - The Economist The Future Is Asian offers a valuable and thoroughly researched analysis - Wall Street Journal
