Rivals: How the Power Struggle Between China, India, and Japan Will Shape Our Next Decade
By Bill Emmott
Harcourt, 2008, 352 pp. $26.00 Purchase

This is a bold study of how the three major Asian states are engaging in power struggles that will shape the future of international relations, and not just in Asia. The title of the book and some of the chapter headings suggest conflict and differences, but the author's argument is essentially constructive and upbeat. Emmott sees China as the middle country that will play the central role in defining the future of the Asian continent, Japan as powerful but aging, and India as in the process of shedding its confused view of its potential role in international affairs.
