The world has never seen economic development as rapid or significant as Asia's during recent decades. Home to three-fifths of humanity, this restless continent will soon produce more than half of the world's economic output and consume more energy than the rest of the world combined. All but three of the planet's current and nascent nuclear powers are Asian, and it has the greatest growth in weapons spending of any other region.
