Soon China will rule the world. But in doing so, it will not become more ‘Western’. Martin Jacques’ groundbreaking book, When China Rules the World, overturns conventional thinking about the ascendancy of China, showing how its impact will not just be economic, but cultural. He provides for the first time the deeper meaning of China’s rise to power and the start of a future of ‘contested modernity’.
