In this engaging and lively overview, professor Anja Manuel advises the US to cooperate with China where possible, while being clear about where it draws the line. A former US State Department official who now teaches at Stanford, Manuel cautions that while China draws international attention, Americans tend to overlook India, which is nearly as important. Manuel, who comprehensively updated the book in 2016 and added a preface that addresses Donald Trump’s administration, ultimately paints a hopeful picture. While always politically neutral, getAbstract recommends her elegantly written study to investors, policymakers and anyone who is involved in global commerce.
In this summary, you will learn
- How the global balance of power is shifting,
- What internal challenges China and India face,
- How they are overcoming them,
- What prominent role they’re beginning to play internationally, and
- How the US can help guide both countries’ foray into the world into constructive channels.
