Kurzbeschreibung

7. Mai 2009
For two centuries Asians 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. By 2050, three of the world's largest economies will be Asian: China, India, and Japan. In The New Asian Hemisphere, Kishore Mahbubani argues that Western minds need to step outside their "comfort zone" and prepare new mental maps to understand the rise of Asia. The West, he says, must gracefully share power with Asia by giving up its automatic domination of global institutions from the IMF to the World Bank, from the G7 to the UN Security Council. Only then will the new Asian powers reciprocate by becoming responsible stakeholders in a stable world order.

Pressestimmen

"(S)uccinct, accessible and pointed" and say that "if you want to maintain notions of developed Western hemisphere countries benignly acting in the best interests of the world get a different book. If you are open instead to seeing the world through an Asian lens less sanguine about Western motives, you should find this book highly thought-provoking." Irish Times "This is no dry scholarly tome. It is an anti-Western polemic, designed to wake up Americans and Europeans by making them angry. In that goal it will certainly be successful." Economist"

Synopsis

One of Asia's leading intellectuals illuminates what will be on the agenda as Western domination ends and the Asian renaissance impacts world politics, markets and history. For centuries the Asians (Chinese, Indians, Muslims and others) have been bystanders in world history. Now, they are ready to become co-drivers. Asians have finally understood, absorbed and implemented Western best practices in many areas: from free-market economies to modern science and technology, from meritocracy to rule of law. They have also become innovative in their own way, creating new patterns of cooperation not seen in the West.Will the West resist the rise of Asia? The good news is that Asia wants to replicate, not dominate, the West. For a happy outcome to emerge, the West must gracefully give up its domination of global institutions, from the IMF to the World Bank, from the G7 to the UN Security Council. History teaches that tensions and conflicts are more likely when new powers emerge. This too may happen. But they can be avoided if the world accepts the key principles for a new global partnership spelled out in this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Time to change our western mind about Asia 7. Dezember 2010
Format:Taschenbuch
Kishore Mahbubani, a former diplomat from Singapore and now Dean and Professor of the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore ha written a real thought provoking book about Asia in the 21st century. The titel "The New Asian Hemisphere. The irresistible Shift of Global Power to the east" made clear from the beginning that the time of Western supremacy over the rest of the world is over.In the run of the global financial crisis of 2008-2009 we have seen a global demystification of so called Western competence.
Mahbubani confronted the reader with the different way of thinking in Asian countries. These countries are following a pragmatic rather than an ideological approach to economic groth and development. We, the Western countries come back with old ideas like protectionism and react in panic. The autor suggests to stop with Japan-bashing of the 80th, the India-bashing of the 90th and the China-bashing in the first decade of the 21st century.
As a historian, Mahbubani describes the actual De-Westernization as the return of history. Western incompetence will bo followed by Asian competence.
The rise of Asia will be the dominant story in history books after 2100. Cold war and the rise of Islam will be secondary ones.
This book is a must for Western politicians, experts on policy and others who still believes that the Western dominance will last for this century. Its a wake up call for all of us.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The Dawn of a New Asian Century? 8. März 2010
Von Mario Pf. HALL OF FAME REZENSENT TOP 500 REZENSENT
Format:Taschenbuch
Das Zeitalter der westlichen Dominanz geht zu Ende, nachdem sich immer mehr asiatische Staaten zu regional und teils auch global bedeutenden Wirtschaftsmächten entwickeln. Und die asiatischen Mittelstandsgesellschaften beginnen zu erkennen, dass sie von der Globalisierung am meisten profitiert haben und dieser wirtschaftliche Bedeutungszuwachs auch in politische Macht umgemünzt werden kann. Kishore Mahbubani empfiehlt dem "Westen", diese Entwicklung zu begrüßen und sich nicht in teuren, am Ende sogar kontraproduktiven Isolationismus zu flüchten. Freihandel und Globalisierung, die in unseren Breitengraden negativ besetzt sind, gelten in einem anderen, demografisch und wirtschaftlich erheblich gewichtigeren Teil unserer Welt als Inbegriff des Aufschwungs, der Asien wieder dorthin zurückführt, wo es vor dem goldenen Zeitalter des Westens, welches stark an den Kolonialismus gebunden ist, war.

"Die Rückkehr Asiens" bezeugt diesen Aufschwung eines ganzen Kontinents und einer Region, die von westlicher Presse "noch" viel zu wenig beachtet wird, auch wenn sie längst auf dem Weg ist, Europa und den USA die Show zu stehlen. Dabei offenbart der in Singapur unterrichtende Professor für Politikwissenschaften, dem Leser eine oft auch irritierend andere Perspektive und Weltsicht, die einen deutlich vor Augen führt, wie blind man doch gewesen ist, wie wenig man doch verstanden hat, dass eine Münze immer zwei Seiten und man fast ausschließlich die westliche betrachtet hat. Mahbubanis großer Verdienst dabei, er eröffnet dem Leser nicht nur vielleiht kontroversiell andere Sichtweisen, sondern erklärt ihm diese auch.

4.0 von 5 Sternen More Relevant Than Ever! 8. Juni 2010
Von M. Moran
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is more than just an interesting read! Given the current economic problems in Europe, I think that this book is perhaps more relevant than ever before. Although the book is very one sided and does sometimes fail to address the dangers that the rise of Asia represent for the West to their fullest, it is still a very interesting perspective. It think that this book deserves to be read and that it is a must on the book shelves of those claiming to be interested in World Politics and Economics.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Der Blick von Asien nach dem Westen 5. September 2009

Wahrscheinlich das best recherchierte Buch zur wirtschafltichen und politischen Entwicklung von Asien und des Westens. Wer dieses Buch liest, erfährt wie Asien und die islamische Welt den Westen sehen - nünaciert und prägnant formuliert. Ein Muss für Führungskräfte und Menschen, die mit dieser Welt zu tun haben.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Hail the March to Modernity! 24. Mai 2008
Von H. Schneider - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
First I noticed the controversy about this book in Hard Talk on BBC, where the host and the author did some very unsatisfactory pirouettes around the contentious issues, which are related to the Western reservations about current Asian progress. Then I read an even worse interview in Der Spiegel, where the interviewers excelled in stupidity while the author excelled in stubbornness.
Consequently I had to pick up the book and read it. KM expects to provoke 'us' Westerners, but he asks some pundits to write blurbs, which Summers and Zbig and others did.
KM's thesis is this: Asia rises, and that is good for the world. The Western leaders have trouble in adjusting their mental maps, which are trapped in the past. Asia has benefitted from the world system as established after WW2 and has no interest in endangering it. The current wave of optimism will enter West Asia as well and Pakistan, Iran and others will want to have the same progress as China and India etc...
The March to Modernity is good for all, and it is not just material, rather the escape from poverty has far reaching immaterial value for the masses of Asia.
In short, KM is a 'hopeless' optimist, and I do hope that his victorious scenario wins. My biggest doubts are over the Islamic world's ability to join the trend. Maybe KM knows better. I do hope so.
One surprise for me was that KM steps away from the old litany of Lee Kuan Yew and others, i.e. that Asian economic success is due to traditonal Confucian values. In the contrary, KM argues that China, India, and the others, are following Japan in adopting the '7 pillars' that were the basis of the West's surge forward some centuries ago. These 7 pillars are: 1. free economy (expect Adam Smith in the Asian pantheon of the future!), 2.science (enormous push forward; quote Rajiv Gandhi: better brain drain than brain in the drain); 3. meritocracy/equal opportunity, a trend which requires overcoming huge traditional obstacles, but which is clearly on the way; 4.pragmatism: possibly a euphemism for copying; 5.a culture of peace (maybe hard to believe for many in the West); 6. the rule of law: far from being an attained target so far; 7.education.
If KM is right, the adoption of Western values is going far beyond copying Gucci bags and Lacoste shirts. In that sense I would'nt be surprised if he got as much headwind in Asia as in the West.
The headwind in the West comes from his criticism of the exportation of democracy into nations that are not ready for it. And of course from his criticism of the way the West dominates the international institutions and applies double standards.
Why are we not happy with the Asians following our example? Because it means loss of power, plain and simple.
Can't say that I don't see his point. Equally I think he is right in blaming the current Western leadership for gross incompetence in critical issues such as Middle East policy (the Iraq invasion as the single worst case of bad judgment and terrible implementation), free trade, nuclear non-proliferation, global warming...
Incidentally, KM points out, at the time when Giordano Bruno was burned for heresy in Rome, the Muslim emperor Akbar the Great pronounced principles of a secular government in India. So much for Western conceipt.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Mahbubani's chef d' oeuvre 10. Februar 2008
Von PK - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
After his too previous books, "Can Asians Think?" and "Beyond the Age of Innocence", Professor Kishore Mahbubani has delivered his most mature work in this book. The book is both a pleasure to read, thanks to Mahbubani's amicable style (seasoned during 33 years in the diplomatic service), as well as brilliantly argued and intellectually appealing. The author offers incisive criticisms of Western policies and attitudes on several global issues and an illuminating analysis of areas where Asians seem to have been doing better lately. He is meticulously open-minded and as unbiased as one can get; he gives credit to the West for all the good it has done to the world (from the establishment of international norms of law to great universities), but also highlights its shortcomings. Still, he remains free of ideological constrains. Moreover, the author, being experienced both as a diplomat and an academic, possesses a keen didactic ability to explain his ideas to one who may be, for any reason, inclined to find them counter-intuitive.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An excellent set of observations concerning global change 30. März 2008
Von E. W. Lewis - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This is an excellent book with a considerable set of observations concerning the shifts occurring in the global power equation. It is both complementary of and critical of Western Civilization. It gives credit where credit is due: Western Civilization established a set of cultural principles which are generally applicable to all of humankind: democracy, the rule of law, the intellectual gift of the Enlightenment.

Westerna Civilization is, however, in the process of weakening itself. It errs significantly when it deviates from those principals. The United States is particularly prone to embrace ideology (be it political or moralistic) when operating on the world stage. This approach was doomed to failure in the past and is doomed to failure in the present. One does not force democracy down the throats of people at the barrel of a gun. One does not torture people in hidden prisons. One does not make friends and influence people in a global village by playing the bully.

Essentially the world is filled with highly intelligent and hardworking people. They may not want to be fully Westernized but they certainly want to be "Modernized." How much they adopt the principles of democracy should be up to them. Not all societies are developed to a level where they can easily embrace Western views of democracy. They will, however, become more progressive.

The are some weaknesses in the book. The author is extremely concerned about the rise of protectionism particularly in America. This makes sense since the US provides the rest of the world with 100s of billions of dollars a year of its wealth. This is ultimately hurtful to the American form of Western Civilization. Diminishing the wealth base of the United States cannot continue to be the sole source of growth for Asian economies. The author does not present any recommendations as to how to deal with this form of unsustainable economics.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Asia's March to Modernity 13. Mai 2008
Von Izaak VanGaalen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Kishore Mahbubani, former diplomat and currently dean of the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy in Singapore, was one of the leading exponents of "Asian values" in the 1980s. Although they were in vogue for a time, the merits of those values were lost on many during the Asian financial crises of the 1990s. But since then Asian countries have made a remarkable recovery, and now Mahbubani is back taking his argument to a new level.

With 7-10% annual economic growth rates, Mahbubani sees global power shifting from West to East. He attributes this success not only to Asian values, but also to what he calls "the seven pillars of Western wisdom." Those pillars are free-market economics; science and technology; meritocracy; pragmatism; a culture of peace; rule of law; and education. Modernization in Asia began in the late 19th century with Japan opening to the West, then followed by the 4 tigers, and finally China and India. This march to modernity, as he calls it, has not only raised living standards but also Asian expectations in global power-sharing.

Mahbubani's grudge against the West is that the West is not playing by the rules which it created. The West, which he sees as Europe and North America, has only 15% of the world's population and 48% of global GDP; whereas the East - which is everyone else - has 85% of the world's population and 52% of GDP. The West is still dominating the world through outdated institutions such as the UN Security Council, the IMF, and the World Bank. Under a system of meritocracy or democracy the East should have a much larger role in global affairs.

Mahbubani makes many suggestions that would rectify this situation such as making India and China members of the G8, and opening up some of the top jobs at the IMF and World Bank to Asians. I couldn't agree more. His criticisms of the West have, for the most part, been correct. America's botched operation in Iraq is an easy target. Nuclear proliferation issues and the West's failure to stop genocide the Balkans and Rwanda are also given as examples of the West's incompentence. True again. This should not, however, be contrued as being anti-Western, it is only constructive criticism.

Unfortunately Mahbubani is as uncritical of Asia's shortcomings as he critical of the West's. When he says that the Chinese are freer today than they have been at any time in their history, one would have to agree. (This is also the view of Parag Khanna in The Second World.) But what about the rights of Tibetans and other minorities in China? What about legal and political rights in general? Autocracies only allow economic freedom. He also conveniently overlooks the violence in Kashmir, Sri Lanka, and Indonesia. And why blame only the West when nuclear proliferation in North Korea, Pakistan, and now Iran is mostly a result of China's neglect? Asian ascendancy has not been without its own fiascoes.

Parag Khanna argued that there will be three global leaders in the new century: the US, the EU, and China. Mahbubani would like to add India, for he sees India as a bridge between the East and the West. This is a valid point since many Indian intellectuals are at home in both the East and the West. He claims there is still a resistance among public intellectuals and journalists in the West to accept the East on equal terms, but I myself have not seen this resistance. I see a greater recognition of the East almost on a daily basis. With Asia's growing economic power, political power will follow no matter how much real or imagined resistance there is.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Very good analysis, recommended! 5. Juli 2009
Von Rjm Theunens - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The book starts with a detailed analysis of the (possible) courses of action for the "West" in its future relations with Asia. I found this analysis most impressive; a true eye-opener. The author does an excellent job in explaining the background to the often opposite views of the "West" and Asia on the international level, highlighting the often too important role of short-term political opportunism in "Western" decision-making. The author is a strong supporter of China. Based on the fact that the book is mainly intended for a "Western" audience, the author could have spent more attention on some of the criticism that can be heard in the "West" against China. In the second half of the book, there are a few instances where it seems that the author falls in the same trap of stereotyping, he criticises the "West" for. One example: an unfortunate diplomatic incident is used to support the conclusion that "all Europeans view Asian culture with disdain...". I find this somewhat surprising for such an author and such a book. Still, I would certainly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in "globalisation" and wants to go beyond Thomas Friedman...
