The new Asian hemisphere : the irresistible shift of global power to the East by Kishore Mahbubani( )

37 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 1,891 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For two centuries the Asians - from Tehran to Tokyo, from Mumbai to Shanghai - have been bystanders in world history, reacting defenselessly to the surges of Western commerce, thought, and power. That era is over. Asia is returning to the center stage it occupied for eighteen centuries before the rise of the West. Asians have absorbed and understood Western best practices in many areas, from free-market economics to the embrace of innovative science and technology, meritocracy, and the rule of law. And they have become innovative in their own way, creating new patterns of cooperation not seen in the West. Their rise is unstoppable - by 2050, three of the world's largest economies will be Asian: China, India, and Japan." "Will the West resist the rise of Asia? This scenario will be disastrous. Asia wants to replicate, not dominate, the West. But the West must gracefully share power with Asia, by giving up its automatic domination of global institutions from the IMF to the World Bank, from the G-7 to the UN Security Council. If the West accepts the rise of Asia and shares power, the new Asian powers will reciprocate by becoming responsible stakeholders in a stable world order. They will lift some global burdens off Western shoulders. But such positive outcomes are not inevitable. History teaches us that the rise of new powers almost always leads to tension and conflict. This book explains how the worst case scenarios can be avoided. It also explains why Westerners need to step outside their "comfort zone" and prepare new mental maps to understand the rise of Asia. In short, it is an indispensable guide to understanding the forces that are shaping the emerging Asian century."--Jacket
Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy : building a global policy school in Asia by Kishore Mahbubani( )

14 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 1,519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In an industry of higher education that measures the longevity of its leading institutions in decades and centuries, the establishment and rapid growth of the eight-year-old Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy (LKY School), National University of Singapore, is a remarkable story that deserves to be told. The five co-authors, all of whom were involved in guiding the School during its formative years, provide unique perspectives of key events and the thinking behind major decisions that helped place the School on its current trajectory. They also provide insights into the challenges faced along
In the middle of China's future : Tom Plate on Asia : what two decades of worldwide newspaper columns prefigure about the future of the China-U.S. relationship by Tom Plate( )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 944 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The best journalism tackles the really tough questions! Was the U.S. asleep when China was waking up? Or was its engagement too timid? Will Washington find conflict with Beijing unavoidable? Or has the U.S. policy of engagement and accommodation been the best way to go? Award-winning journalist and syndicated columnist Tom Plate reviews his own two-decade record of newspaper commentary on China in a searching re-evaluation of where he was right and where he went wrong - and where the U.S.-China rivalry and relationship may be headed
Beyond the age of innocence : a worldly view of America by Kishore Mahbubani( Book )

17 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 747 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Many Americans know in their heart of hearts that something has gone wrong in America's relations with the world. But they don't quite know why. Or what triggered this. Beyond the Age of Innocence explains the complex story of America and the world, and the seismic shifts that have taken place, unnoticed by many Americans." "Kishore Mahbubani is an old friend of America. Growing up in Singapore, on the other side of the world, his life has been powerfully influenced by the American era. In this book, he sets out to explain both the global enchantment and disenchantment with America and what America can still do to save the situation."--Jacket
The great convergence : Asia, the West, and the logic of one world by Kishore Mahbubani( Book )

27 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 669 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Before the current international economic crisis, Asian policymakers deferred to their Western counterparts. The enormous blunders since committed by the US and Europe mean deference has been replaced by disquiet. Asia's concern is that the world will soon come to grief if both the US and Europe fail to make fundamental readjustments. An America and EU that takes serious economic measures will cause the rest of the world pain, as Western consumption and imports diminish. But there is no painless solution: only when the West gets its house in order can Asia hope for a more sustainable future"--
Pueden pensar los asiáticos? by Kishore Mahbubani( )

6 editions published in 2002 in Spanish and held by 627 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Con un territorio que se extiende de Japón e Indonesia al mundo árabe, Asia, el continente más grande del mundo, es también el centro espiritual de religiones tan importantes como el islamismo, el budismo, el confucianismo y el hinduismo y hogar de casi el 60% de la población de la Tierra. Aunque su economía está llamada a superar en cincuenta años a las de Europa y América del Norte, los occidentales hemos hecho muy poco por modificar nuestras actitudes a la luz de las actuales circunstancias. Mahbubani está convencido de que el "choque de las civilizaciones" sólo podrá evitarse si todos los involucrados procedemos a una honda reflexión. Su análisis del pasado y prefiguraciones del futuro constituyen un llamado de alerta para asiáticos y occidentales por igual

The ASEAN miracle : a catalyst for peace by Kishore Mahbubani( )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and Malay and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Association of Southeast Asian Nations is a miracle. Why?In an era of growing cultural pessimism, many thoughtful individuals believe that different civilisations-especially Islam and the West-cannot live together in peace. The ten countries of ASEAN provide a thriving counter-example of civilizational co-existence. Here 625m people live together in peace. This miracle was delivered by ASEAN. In an era of growing economic pessimism, where many young people believe that their lives will get worse in coming decades, Southeast Asia bubbles with optimism. In an era where many thinkers predict rising geopolitical competition and tension, ASEAN regularly brings together all the world's great powers. Stories of peace are told less frequently than stories of conflict and war. ASEAN's imperfections make better headlines than its achievements. But in the hands of thinker and writer Kishore Mahbubani, the good news story is also a provocation and a challenge to the rest of the world

Can Singapore survive? by Kishore Mahbubani( )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book poses the question that Singaporeans must wrestle with: can we survive as an independent city-state? Kishore Mahbubani believes that Singaporeans must always ask the question because constant reflection and self-examination should be a part of the core DNA of all Singaporeans. His goal in this book is to create and enhance this culture of reflection among all Singaporeans. He gives three answers in this book: Yes, No & Maybe. With these three answers, he attempts to sketch three different scenarios for Singapore's future. There is logic behind this, as we cannot predict the future. We can, however, prepare for the future by telling stories about what the future could be like. Besides his substantive Introduction, this book offers some of Kishore's best essays on Singapore, taken from his Think-Tank and Opinion columns in The Straits Times, as well as contributions to Guardian News, The New York Times, The New York Review of Books, Davos World Economic Forum's Forum News Daily, and the "Innovations for Successful Societies" Oral History Project of Princeton University."--Publisher description
Has the West lost it? : a provocation by Kishore Mahbubani( Book )

4 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Kishore Mahbubani's ... polemic, he argues ... that the West can no longer presume to impose its ideology on the world, and, crucially, that it must stop seeking to uintervene, politically and militarily, in the affiars of other nations. He examines the West's greatest follies of recent times: the humiliation of Russia at the end of the Cold war, which led to the rise of Putin, and the invasion of Iraq after 9/11, which destabilised the Middle East. Yet, he argues, erssential to future world peace are the Western constructs of democracy and reason, which it must continue to promote, by diplomacy rather than force, via multilateral institutins of global governance, such as the UN.Onlyu by recognizing its changing status, and seeking to influence rather than dominate, he warns, can the West continue to play a key geopolitical role."--Book jacket

The clash of civilizations? : the debate : 20th anniversary edition : what did Samuel P. Huntington's "The clash of civilization?" get right and wrong, and how does it look two decades later?( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume brings together a broad range of Foreign Affairs content to commemorate the twentieth anniversary of Samuel Huntington's classic article "The Clash of Civilizations?" Huntington's essay argued that culture, rather than ideology or geopolitics, would be the driving source of international conflict in the post-Cold War era. It struck a nerve because it raised important and uncomfortable subjects in direct and powerful ways. Two decades on, the jury is still hung, with critics and defenders passionately arguing the piece's merits and demerits, agreeing only on its enduring significance both as a marker of its times and a theoretical perspective that demands serious engagement. We believe that readers should make up their own minds about how well his argument does and doesn't hold up. So we've pulled together the original article; a broad range of responses from prominent commentators; Huntington's response to his critics; a recent retrospective analysis by Richard Betts; eulogies of Huntington from Stephen Peter Rosen, Eliot Cohen, Zbigniew Brzezinski, and Henry Rosovsky; and a video of a celebration of Huntington's career featuring reminiscences from some of his students, including Cohen, Francis Fukuyama, and Fareed Zakaria. An introduction by Foreign Affairs Editor Gideon Rose sets the stage for the debates that follow
