"China", Napoleon once remarked, "is a sleeping lion. Let her
sleep, for when she wakes she will shake the world." In 2014,
President Xi Jinping triumphantly declared the lion had awakened.
Under his leadership, China is pursuing a dream to restore its
historical position as the dominant power in Asia. From the Mekong
River Basin to the Central Asian steppe, China is flexing its
economic muscles for strategic ends. By setting up new regional
financial institutions, Beijing is challenging the post-World War
II order established under the watchful eye of Washington. And by
funding and building roads, railways, ports and power lines-a New
Silk Road across Eurasia and through the South China Sea and Indian
Ocean-China aims to draw its neighbours ever tighter into its
embrace. Combining a geopolitical overview with on-the-ground
reportage from a dozen countries, China's Asian Dream offers a
fresh perspective on the rise of China' and asks: what does it
means for the future of Asia?
