China will replace the United States as the world's dominant power. In so doing, it will not become more western but the world will become more Chinese. Jacques argues that we cannot understand China in western terms but only through its own history and culture. To this end, he introduces a powerful set of ideas including China as a civilization-state, the tributary system, the Chinese idea of race, a very different concept of the state, and the principle of contested modernity. First published in 2009 to widespread critical acclaim - and controversy - 'When China Rules the World: The End of the Western World and the Rise of a New Global Order' has sold a quarter of a million copies, been translated into eleven languages, nominated for two major literary awards, and has been the subject of an immensely popular TED talk. In the three years since the first edition was published, the book has transformed the debate about China worldwide and proved remarkably prescient.In this greatly expanded and fully updated paperback edition, with nearly three-hundred pages of new material backed up by the latest statistical data, Martin Jacques renews his assault on conventional thinking about China's ascendancy, showing how its impact will be as much political and cultural as economic, thereby transforming the world as we know it. Martin Jacques is one of Britain's foremost public intellectuals. A Visiting Senior Research Fellow at IDEAS, the London School of Economics' centre for diplomacy and grand strategy, a Visiting Professor at Tsinghua University, Beijing, and a Fellow of the Transatlantic Academy, Washington DC, Martin Jacques is widely respected as a leading global expert on what could prove to be the most important geopolitical event of the past 200 years: the rise of China. He was editor of Marxism Today from 1977 until the journal's closure in 1991, and has also worked as deputy editor of The Independent. He has been a columnist for the Times, the Guardian, the Observer, and the New Statesman, as well as writing for international publications such as the Financial Times, Economist, New York Times, International Herald Tribune, Daily Beast, Volkskrant, Corriere della Sera, L'Unita, South China Morning Post, and Folha Des Paulo.

For over two hundred years we have lived in a western-made world, one where the very notion of being modern was synonymous with being western. This original and ground-breaking new book argues that the twenty-first century will be different. With the rise of increasingly powerful non-Western countries, the west will no longer be dominant and there will be many ways of being modern. In this new era of 'contested modernity' the central player will be China. Far from becoming a western-style society, China will remain highly distinctive. Continental in size and mentality, and accounting for one-fifth of humanity, China is a 'civilization-state' whose characteristics, attitudes and values long predate its existence as a nation-state. China is already having a far-reaching and much discussed economic impact, but its influence will be far greater than this- China's rise signals the end of the global dominance of the western nation-state and the rise of a world which it will shape in a host of different ways. As it rapidly reassumes its traditional position at the centre of East Asia, the old tributary system will be resurface in a modern form, contemporary ideas of racial hierarchy will be redrawn and China's ages-old sense of superiority will reassert itself. China's rise will change the world as we know it, from one made in the west to one increasingly shaped by China. This profound and far-sighted book explains for the first time the deeper meaning of China's arrival as a global power.

In this book, we have hand-picked the most sophisticated, unanticipated, absorbing (if not at times crackpot!), original and musing book reviews of "When China Rules the World: The End of the Western World and the Birth of a New Global Order." Don't say we didn't warn you: these reviews are known to shock with their unconventionality or intimacy. Some may be startled by their biting sincerity; others may be spellbound by their unbridled flights of fantasy. Don't buy this book if: 1. You don't have nerves of steel. 2. You expect to get pregnant in the next five minutes. 3. You've heard it all.

The China Choice

'This is an extremely important book, by far the most important contribution so far to Australia's debate on its relationship with China.

China is rising - how should America respond? That could be the crucial question of the twenty-first century, according to strategic expert Hugh White. It is also a crucial question for Australia, affecting our future economy and security. In this essential book, White considers the options for the Asian century. As China's economy grows to become the world's largest, America has three choices: it can compete, share power or concede leadership in Asia. the choice is momentous - as significant for America's future as any it has faced. White controversially argues that America's best option is to share power with China and relinquish its supremacy. As these two behemoths face off across the Pacific, the choice America makes will also have an enormous impact on Australia. The China Choice is an urgent intervention in the China debate and provides a blueprint for a peaceful future. 'This is an extremely important book, by far the most important contribution so far to Australia's debate on its relationship with China. One hopes that White's argument in time might prevail not only in Canberra, but also in Washington DC.' Martin Jacques, author of When China Rules the World 'The China Choice is an exceptionally thoughtful synthesis of the arguments and influences which bear upon the coming shape of the Pacific.'

ÔRichard Iley and Mervyn Lewis have written an extremely useful book on the global economy since the Western financial crisis. Well-written, well-informed and easily accessible to non-economists, it offers much good sense about many questions, from the future of the renminbi to that of the United States. They wisely urge that, as ChinaÕs rise continues, the United States should engage with China rather than resist it. This is a book full of good judgement that deserves a wide readership.Õ Ð Martin Jacques, author, When China Rules the World: The End of the Western World and the Birth of a New Global Order ÔThe interplay between the macro-economic imbalances, notably in the relationship between the USA and China, and the more micro-economic shortcomings of the WestÕs financial systems, particularly the lax regulation, forms the centre-piece of this excellently written book. In the disputes about the relative culpability of China and the USA for current macro-economic problems, they tend to support the Chinese arguments, and give well-considered arguments for so doing. This book provides an excellent, clear, and at times provocative, assessment of the course of the macro-monetary problems of the world since the Ògreat recessionÓ struck.Õ Ð Charles A.E. Goodhart, London School of Economics, UK This thought-provoking book addresses challenging questions raised in light of the aftermath of the global financial crisis that saw an accelerated rise in the economic growth of China and other emerging market economies, while the US, Japan and Europe have laboured under the great recession. The authors examine global post-crisis reordering in a long-run context, identify five fundamental flaws in global bank business models and document the explosion of gross capital flows. They tackle difficult-to-answer lines of enquiry such as: can zero interest rates and quantitative easing lift the advanced world back to growth, or will they be dragged down by the overhang of debt? Might costs on savers, retirees and distortions to the pattern of global financing render zero rates counter-productive? What issues face the BRICs? Could ÔChina as number oneÕ see the renminbi soon challenge the dollar and the euro as a major international currency? Providing a detailed analysis of the post-crisis world and the issues posed by the rise of China and emerging market economies relative to developed countries, this book will prove a stimulating account for academics, students and researchers in the fields of economics, money, finance and banking, and world trade. Bank and market economists as well as policymakers based in central banks, governments and think-tanks will also find this book to be an invaluable reference tool.

Re globalisation

As the first systemic and book-length study of “re-globalisation”, this volume will appeal to researchers and students of politics and Chinese studies, and contemporary Chinese politics in particular.

Since the end of the Cold War, globalisation has been the dominant political and economic trend. But what is China’s role in globalisation? What is China’s vision of the world? This title offers a fresh and stimulating account of how China's involvement in globalisation has changed over time, and how its role in leading the “re-globalisation” process is profoundly reshaping the world. Introducing an innovative theoretical framework in the shape of “re-globalisation”, this book discusses China’s strategies and challenges while interacting with the international community. The book provides several illuminating case studies, such as the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), and the strategies of the Chinese technology firm Alibaba. Rich in data and bold in argument, the book provides an extraordinarily dynamic depiction of how China’s encounter with the outside world has not only transformed itself, but also reshaped the global order. As the first systemic and book-length study of “re-globalisation”, this volume will appeal to researchers and students of politics and Chinese studies, and contemporary Chinese politics in particular.

An authority on Asia and globalization identifies the challenges China's growing power poses and how it must be confronted When China joined the World Trade Organization in 2001, most experts expected the WTO rules and procedures to liberalize China and make it "a responsible stakeholder in the liberal world order." But the experts made the wrong bet. China today is liberalizing neither economically nor politically but, if anything, becoming more authoritarian and mercantilist. In this book, notably free of partisan posturing and inflammatory rhetoric, renowned globalization and Asia expert Clyde Prestowitz describes the key challenges posed by China and the strategies America and the Free World must adopt to meet them. He argues that these must be more sophisticated and more comprehensive than a narrowly targeted trade war. Rather, he urges strategies that the United States and its allies can use unilaterally without contravening international or domestic law.

China and the US are part of our daily lives. This more than that. The US by global consequences of supremacy in crisis and China by global consequences of its rise the second economic power. The strategic clash between both promotes the global expansion of capitalism in the twenty-first century. This is the central thematic proposal by the book. I'm not a fan of the theses that defend the American decline. I argue the crisis of US world supremacy from September 11. As the Chinese ascent, results of great economic transformation it has undergone this ancient society in the last three decades of capitalist development contained within the limits of the Great Wall. The strategic clash is already formatting a new trajectory for capitalism in the twenty-first century. This is the main finding of the book as a study on the global expansion of capitalism. However, it is not prophetic study on the future of the two economies. This is a prospective study on the impact to the global trajectory of capitalism originated by the strategic clash, especially considering its asymmetric nature that combines the crisis of global hegemonic power and the mad rush of the Chinese communist leadership in a dream the search: "When China rules the world ." The object of this study is decipher the saga of capitalism in China. The Nation-civilization is older than the system. Its development in China is in recent history, even contemporary China who adopted him. Very little can be predicted with respect to its future. We are the first impacts of what we call the great economic transformation of the last three decades of development. We are at the end of this brief long-term development cycle. Today is impossible to predict on maturity. What will be the revitalization strategies of maturity? What we know and what was the experience of great economic transformation in the shortest time-historical human development engaging most of the world's population. Singular human experience. There has never been and never will be another. This is perhaps the main idiosyncrasy of the development trajectory. Future completely open with respect to human development. The determinism and free will are not able to respond. This put the challenge: the future of capitalism in China. As the last and irreversible, the known present and an uncertain, unknown future, knowing the present (time when the future is being built) it will be possible to form any perspective of the future.
