    DescriptionGreatly revised and expanded, with a new afterword, this update to Martin Jacques's global bestseller is an essential guide to understanding a world increasingly shaped by Chinese powerSoon, China will rule the world. But in doing so, it will not become more Western. Since the first publication of "When China Rules the World," the landscape of world power has shifted dramatically. In the three years since the first edition was published, "When China Rules the World" has proved to be a remarkably prescient book, transforming the nature of the debate on China.Now, in this greatly expanded and fully updated edition, boasting nearly 300 pages of new material, and backed up by the latest statistical data, Martin Jacques renews his assault on conventional thinking about China's ascendancy, showing how its impact will be as much political and cultural as economic, changing the world as we know it.First published in 2009 to widespread critical acclaim - and controversy - "When China Rules the World: The End of the Western World and the Birth of a New Global Order" has sold a quarter of a million copies, been translated into eleven languages, nominated for two major literary awards, and is the subject of an immensely popular TED talk.
