Rivals Cover


How the Power Struggle Between China, India and Japan Will Shape Our Next Decade

By Bill Emmott

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Hardcover, 9780151015030, 352pp.

Publication Date: May 1, 2008

The former editor in chief of the "Economist "returns to the territory of his best-selling book "The Sun Also Sets "to lay out an entirely fresh analysis of the growing rivalry between China, India, and Japan and what it will mean for America, the global economy, and the twenty-first-century world.

Though books such as "The World Is Flat "and "China Shakes the World "consider them only as individual actors, Emmott argues that these three political and economic giants are closely intertwined by their fierce competition for influence, markets, resources, and strategic advantage. R"ivals "explains and explores the ways in which this sometimes bitter rivalry will play out over the next decade in business, global politics, military competition, and the environment and reveals the efforts of the United States to manipulate and benefit from this rivalry. Identifying the biggest risks born of these struggles, "Rivals "also outlines the ways these risks can and should be managed by all of us.
