Has The West Lost It? - A Provocation (Hardcover): Kishore Mahbubani Has The West Lost It? - A Provocation (Hardcover)
Kishore Mahbubani 1
R320 R252 Discovery Miles 2 520 Save R68 (21%) Shipped within 4 - 8 working days

The West's two-century epoch as global powerhouse is at an end. A new world order, with China and India as the strongest economies, dawns. How will the West react to its new status of superpower in decline?

In Kishore Mahbubani's timely polemic, he argues passionately that the West can no longer presume to impose its ideology on the world, and crucially, that it must stop seeking to intervene, politically and militarily, in the affairs of other nations. He examines the West's greatest follies of recent times: the humiliation of Russia at the end of the Cold War, which led to the rise of Putin, and the invasion of Iraq after 9/11, which destabilised the Middle East. Yet, he argues, essential to future world peace are the Western constructs of democracy and reason, which it must continue to promote, by diplomacy rather than force, via multilateral institutions of global governance such as the UN.

Only by recognising its changing status, and seeking to influence rather than dominate, he warns, can the West continue to play a key geopolitical role.

'A compelling warning ... It is hard to disagree with this advice from such a well-informed friend of the west' Martin Wolf, Financial Times The West's two-century epoch as global powerhouse is at an end. A new world order, with China and India as the strongest economies, dawns. How will the West react to its new status of superpower in decline? In Kishore Mahbubani's timely polemic, he argues passionately that the West can no longer presume to impose its ideology on the world, and crucially, that it must stop seeking to intervene, politically and militarily, in the affairs of other nations. He examines the West's greatest follies of recent times: the humiliation of Russia at the end of the Cold War, which led to the rise of Putin, and the invasion of Iraq after 9/11, which destabilised the Middle East.

Only by recognising its changing status, and seeking to influence rather than dominate, he warns, can the West continue to play a key geopolitical role. 'Kishore Mahbubani might well be the most intelligent, friendly and doggedly persistent critic of the West. In this brief book, he delivers some of his trademark analysis and pungent observations. We should all think of it as the cold shower that is urgently needed to revive the West' Fareed Zakaria, author of The Post-American World

Tom Plate; Foreword by Kishore Mahbubani
R401 Discovery Miles 4 010 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The best journalism tackles the really tough questions Was the U.S. asleep when China was waking up? Or was its engagement too timid? All these and more are answered in this new book by experienced writer, journalist and syndicated columnist Tom Plate. For two decades, the columns of Tom Plate featured by leading global editors in some of the best newspapers around the world have focused on Asia in general and China in particular. Picking from more than 300 columns on China (from about 1,000 on Asia since 1995), Professor Plate organizes his work into four thematic sections: Beijing s rise in Asia; bilateral relationship with the U.S.; the unsettling military and security questions; and the two interlinked economies."

Beyond the Age of Innocence - Rebuilding Trust Between America and the World (Paperback, New Ed): Kishore Mahbubani Beyond the Age of Innocence - Rebuilding Trust Between America and the World (Paperback, New Ed)
Kishore Mahbubani
R296 R278 Discovery Miles 2 780 Save R18 (6%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

After publishing articles in leading American journals for over two decades, Kishore Mahbubani was described as "an Asian Toynbee, preoccupied with the rise and fall of civilizations" by The Economist . Trained in philosophy in North America and Asia, and well-experienced in real politik as a diplomat on the world stage, Mahbubani has unusual insight into America's ever more troubled relationship with the rest of the world. In Beyond the Age of Innocence Mahbubani reveals to us the America that Asia and the rest of the world see. We are a country that has given hope to billions by creating a society where destiny is not determined at birth. After the Second World War, we created a global order which allowed many nations to flourish. But when the Cold War ended, America made a terrible mistake. We started behaving like a normal country, ignoring the plight of others, indifferent to the consequences of our decisions on others. America was imprudent in its policy towards two large masses of mankind: the Chinese and Muslim populations. Guantanamo damaged our moral authority, but Abu Ghraib, paradoxically, may have demonstrated the accountability of American institutions. Still, disillusionment with America has spread to all corners. To allow any lasting gap between America and the world, Mahbubani argues, would be a colossal strategic mistake for America and a huge loss to the world. But there is still time for the US to change course and in this thoughtprovoking, visionary book, Mahbubani shows us how.

The New Asian Hemisphere - The Irresistible Shift of Global Power to the East (Paperback): Kishore Mahbubani The New Asian Hemisphere - The Irresistible Shift of Global Power to the East (Paperback)
Kishore Mahbubani
R347 R298 Discovery Miles 2 980 Save R49 (14%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

For two centuries Asians have been bystanders in world history, reacting defenselessly to the surges of Western commerce, thought, and power. That era is over. Asia is returning to the center stage it occupied for eighteen centuries before the rise of the West.

By 2050, three of the world's largest economies will be Asian: China, India, and Japan. In "The New Asian Hemisphere," Kishore Mahbubani argues that Western minds need to step outside their "comfort zone" and prepare new mental maps to understand the rise of Asia. The West, he says, must gracefully share power with Asia by giving up its automatic domination of global institutions from the IMF to the World Bank, from the G7 to the UN Security Council. Only then will the new Asian powers reciprocate by becoming responsible stakeholders in a stable world order.

The ASEAN Miracle - A Catalyst for Peace (Hardcover): Kishore Mahbubani The ASEAN Miracle - A Catalyst for Peace (Hardcover)
Kishore Mahbubani
R460 Discovery Miles 4 600 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

The Association of Southeast Asian Nations is a miracle. Why?In an era of growing cultural pessimism, many thoughtful individuals believe that different civilisations-especially Islam and the West-cannot live together in peace. The ten countries of ASEAN provide a thriving counter-example of civilizational co-existence. Here 625m people live together in peace. This miracle was delivered by ASEAN. In an era of growing economic pessimism, where many young people believe that their lives will get worse in coming decades, Southeast Asia bubbles with optimism. In an era where many thinkers predict rising geopolitical competition and tension, ASEAN regularly brings together all the world's great powers. Stories of peace are told less frequently than stories of conflict and war. ASEAN's imperfections make better headlines than its achievements. But in the hands of thinker and writer Kishore Mahbubani, the good news story is also a provocation and a challenge to the rest of the world.

China-India Relations - Cooperation and conflict (Paperback): Kanti Bajpai, Jing Huang, Kishore Mahbubani China-India Relations - Cooperation and conflict (Paperback)
Kanti Bajpai, Jing Huang, Kishore Mahbubani
R838 Discovery Miles 8 380 Special order

The question of whether China and India can cooperate is at the core of global geopolitics. As the two countries grow their economies, the potential for conflict is no longer simply a geopolitical one based on relative power, influence and traditional quarrels over land boundaries. This book assesses the varying interests of China and India in economics, environment, energy, and water and addresses the possibility of cooperation in these domains. Containing analyses by leading authorities on China and India, it analyses the nature of existing and emerging conflict, describes the extent of cooperation, and suggests possibilities for collaboration in the future. While it is often suggested that conflict between the giants of Asia is the norm, there are a number of opportunities for cooperation in trade, international and regional financial institutions, renewable energy development and climate change, and shared rivers. This book will be of interest to researchers in the fields of Asian Studies, International Relations, and Asian Politics.

Can Asians Think? (Paperback, 4th Revised edition): Kishore Mahbubani Can Asians Think? (Paperback, 4th Revised edition)
Kishore Mahbubani
R263 R216 Discovery Miles 2 160 Save R47 (18%) Special order

Can Asians think? Is Western civilization universal? Does the West promote human rights for altruistic reasons? These are some questions Kishore Mahbubani has sought to answer in this volume of essays written over the past decade. Contrary to the prevailing view in the West that the 500-year dominance of Western civilization points to it being the only universal civilization, Can Asians Think? argues that other civilizations may yet make equal contributions to the development and growth of mankind. Hailed as an Asian Toynbee and the Max Weber of the new Confucian ethic, Mahbubani continues to illuminate his central arguments with new essays in this fourth edition.
