About this product
- DescriptionAfter having lived in Taipei for ten years, Troy Parfitt sets out on an epic journey to test the theory that China is ascending toward a position of global hegemony.

Here is a unique and powerful book, one that will change the way people think about China and its great rise . Why China Will Never Rule the World is a tour de force; vital for anyone wishing to understand what China is, what is has been, and what it is likely to become.
