With the arrival of the 21st century, many in the City of London believed a new Golden Age of Capitalism was finally approaching. All the ambitious projects of the Big Bang were remarkably progressing across the globe. As pay scales in the financial sector continued to climb, there seemed little to worry about...until one dreadful day in 2008. On the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, things were developing rather differently in the face of hitherto unknown hostility in the Pacific trade relationship. The Soviet Union had finally collapsed but the prodemocracy demonstration in China had to be suppressed. Nevertheless, these events could only reinforce an American belief - liberal democracy is the only remaining `sacred' ideology in the world. In such emancipated optimism, everybody could still enjoy the unprecedented financial momentum of Wall Street lasting even today. Tony Kosuge argues this pre-Brexit global shift in the West must be fundamentally altered by the people's verdict in Britain, as the EU is abruptly caught on the defensive with a massive inflow of desperate migrants crossing the Mediterranean from the war-torn Middle East. Growing public discontent in Europe with austerity measures must be contained, as it is reaching breaking point elsewhere. In this moment of extraordinary tension, Kosuge casts fresh light on the approaching financial threat and how a possible solution to the current economic crisis can be established to overcome the inherent flaws in the current global economy. He reassesses a hidden force that is the still-surviving `forgotten' ideology in the East to deliver drastic appraisals of our own economic system, and above all, the required strategy for its long anticipated recovery.
With the rendering of first-hand information from extraordinary historians in the East who are completely unknown to West and the juxtaposition of their insight and the events that are unfolding in today's all-controversial flashpoints around the globe - Britain, Europe, Russia, Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Egypt, the Arabian peninsula/Middle East, North Africa, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Central Asia, Indian-sub continent, South East Asia, China, Korea, the United States and Japan, or rather in one word, Eurasia - Tony Kosuge demonstrates through - his incredible analysis that the on-going global crisis we are facing today can be perceived as a visible historical movement spanning from the beginning of two world civilizations - the old East and the new West - and in light of the historical implication, how today's deteriorating diplomatic movements could eventually end up. Kosuge's intuition will no doubt surprise readers in that both the problem and the solution must come at a high price for the countries of the remaining East, in particular Japan, at the epicentre of this unprecedented turmoil.In facing the rapidly spreading crisis on a world-wide scale in this age of globalisation, Kosuge reveals why the West must be much more proactive in the process of restructuring diplomatic relations from an informed and truly global viewpoint, with the understanding of what sort of intellectual creation of a New World Order is required for the modernisation of the East and for the birth of a genuine international community to evade the ultimate catastrophe for our precious earth.
This new paperback brings to a Western readership the ground-breaking Toynbee-Kosuge Theory for the first time. The author, a native Japanese speaker, has been able to leap over the world's toughest language-barrier, which has prevented even the most eminent Western political scientists from accessing indigenous documentary evidence in detail. Is Japan going to become a bankrupt state? What will happen to the Chinese economy? And how can Europe and the United States stand up to these unprecedented challenges? Will the West survive such a gigantic financial earthquake and Tsunami with possibility of nuclear confrontation from the East? Almost eighty years ago the British historian argued that its continuing adherence to ancient Chinese political beliefs presented a giant obstacle for the modernization of Japan. Only by perceiving that the old ideology that formed successful Eastern civilizations is still in place, and at the heart of the governance of the 'modern' states in the region, can the West understand the logic behind the recent alarmingly developing political struggles in East Asia. By introducing the real meaning of Arnold Toynbee's arcane analysis, together with the newest thoughts of other experts on this broad issue, Tony Kosuge convincingly warns us of its vital implications to the current world politics and economy.
'We must ask why Japan never gave birth to an independent civilization, corresponding to the Japanese environment, but was eventually found vacant and annexed, by the continental,non-maritime Far Eastern civilization.' Arnold Toynbee, 1935. Is Japan going to become a bankrupt state? What will happen to the Chinese economy? And how will America stand up to this unprecedented challenge? Or can the West survive such a gigantic economic earthquake and Tsunami from the East? Tony Kosuge answers all these questions by concentrating on one vital argument. The ancient ideology that once led the successful Eastern civilizations is still running the 'modern' states of East Asia. The entire political system that contributed so much to East Asiatic civilization for thousands of years and is embedded in its religions, societies and culture, today presents a giant obstacle for the modernization of East Asia. Tony Kosuge, a native Japanese scholar and professional in the City of London and Hong Kong reassesses the history of the region's important political turning points from the creation of its earliest indigenous myths right up to the current financial mess to tell a salient and convincing story. He examines the implications for the coming 'clash' between East and West and analyses how this global conflict might eventually be solved.
