# Highly Recommended《Bran-New + Newly Released 2016 Hardcover Edition + Exploring 3 Ultimate Superpowers In New World》Anja Manuel - THIS BRAVE NEW WORLD: CHINA, INDIA, AND THE UNITED STATES
This New York Tiimes and International bestseller in hardcover edition is a bran-new book and still wrapped with new book plastic wrapper. The original new book is sold at usual price RM116.24 (Hardcover). Now here Only at RM33. A great book to understand the dynamics of the emerging political order with the rise of Asia. It may be noted that this is very Western centric and is a book on how USA views this kind of power shift/rebalance, not a neutralist point of view. In the next decade and a half, China and India will become two of the world’s indispensable powers—whether they rise peacefully or not. During that time, Asia will surpass the combined strength of North America and Europe in economic might, population size, and military spending. Both India and China will have vetoes over many international decisions, from climate change to global trade, human rights, and business standards. From her front row view of this colossal shift, first at the State Department and now as an advisor to American business leaders, Anja Manuel escorts the reader on an intimate tour of the corridors of power in Delhi and Beijing. Her encounters with political and business leaders reveal how each country’s history and politics influences their conduct today. Through vibrant stories, she reveals how each country is working to surmount enormous challenges—from the crushing poverty of Indian slum dwellers and Chinese factory workers, to outrageous corruption scandals, rotting rivers, unbreathable air, and managing their citizens’ discontent. Anja Manuel, a former State Dept Official and now a founding partner of a Strategic Consulting Firm, sets out a cautious, yet surprisingly optimistic, overview of great power relations in the decades to come, with the added dimension that India's rise is given less attention than it is rightfully due, and that more attention should be given toward India's role in the world. This is not to say that the book is India-centric, nor China-centric, rather it is evenly balanced on both China and India. A central message of the book is to not view power relations in zero sum terms, and try to increase co-operation between China and India. Although India, as the book points out, has an economy only 1/5 that of China, it is still too geographically and demographically important not to be left out of great power relations. China and India have much distrust, owing to an unresolved border dispute and economic competitiveness, but can be co-opted into power relations for a more harmonious world. We wring our hands about China, Manuel writes, while we underestimate India, which will be the most important country outside the West to shape China’s rise. Manuel shows us that a different path is possible—we can bring China and India along as partners rather than alienating one or both, and thus extend our own leadership in the world. In “This Brave New World”, Anja Manuel lays out the argument for why it is in the United States, China’s, and India’s best interests to build a relationship of cooperation together in order to better serve each of their respective countries. Anja Manuel explores this history and the challenges facing both India and China that must be understood and appreciated in order to understand their perspective. This understanding would help go a long way in understanding how to move forward in a manner of cooperation. “This Brave New World” is written in a way that is understandable to an individual with no prior background of China or India. Likewise, it is in depth enough to provide new insight to the individual who has done prior research and reading on either country. This ability to educate both ends of the spectrum demonstrates Anja Manuel’s knowledge of these two countries. Although India and China may be seen in a similar light as far as significant population bases and rising economies, the similarities end there. Their cultures, governance, demographics, and even the way their economies are structured could not be more on the opposite side of the spectrum. While the goal of cooperation should be the same for both nations, the ways in which cooperation is achieved with each individual country will be very different. Anja Manuel's book is a message of the importance of co-operation. It is not pessimistic, nor is it naive, rather it addresses how a better world order can be achieved through co-operation and understanding between the three countries who are destined to be the key players in the world order that is to come. I highly recommend “This Brave New World” if you are interested in understanding China or India but have never done any prior research. Additionally, if you have done extensive reading on either nation, this book provides information that can continue to reframe your understanding of either nation in the current perspective of 2017. Anja Manuel is well thought out, clear, and conversational in her writing style. “Incisive...lively and accessible...Manuel shows us that an optimistic path is possible: we can bring China and India along as partners.” —San Francisco Chronicle “ This Brave New World beautifully portrays the two rising powers that will do much to shape this century. Anja Manuel weaves together colorful vignettes of Chinese and Indian life at all levels with keen policy insight about engaging both countries, all in one readable and informative book. If you have room for just one book in your suitcase on your way to China or India—this is the perfect candidate.” —Condoleezza Rice, former U.S. Secretary of State “Anja Manuel has written an elegant and insightful guide to America’s future. How should we engage India and China on all the big challenges ahead? This is an impressive and important book, a fascinating read, and a powerful call to action.” —Nicholas Burns, Professor, Harvard University and former Under Secretary of State About the Author Anja Manuel is cofounder and partner with former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, National Security Advisor Stephen Hadley, and Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, in RiceHadleyGates LLC, a strategic consulting firm.
