Thunder from the East: Portrait of a Rising Asia

Sale price$17.85


An insightful and comprehensive look at Asia on the rise--a masterful job of describing Asia's anguish and ambition (The Washington Post Book World)--from the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists and bestselling authors of Half a Sky and Tightrope

The 1997 economic crisss in Asia heaped devastation upon millions. Yet Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn argue that it was the best thing that could have happened to Asia. It destroyed the cronyism, protectionism, and government regulation that had been crippling Asian business for decades, and it left in its wake a vast region of resilient and determined millions poised to wrest economic, diplomatic and military power from the West.

Thunder from the East is a riveting look at a complex region, a fascinating panoply of compelling characters, and a prophetic analysis from arguably the West's most informed and intelligent writers on Asia.
