The extraordinary economic success of East and Southeast Asia over the last forty years, and the likelihood that this success will continue during the next twenty-five years and expand to India, is one of the great events of the second half of the twentieth century. Drawing on examples from throughout the region, Jim Rohwer shows how governments that combine free-market economic policies and very limited welfare benefits have unleashed the creative and adaptive abilities of their citizens, in the process creating huge new middle classes of consumers.

The author argues that the wealth generated by Asia's resurrection will create tides of business and financial opportunities for Wetsern companies and their workers. Assessing the relative strengths and weaknesses of American, European, Japanese and South Korean multinationals, Rohwer finds that many Western firms hold some critical advantages, including an ability to adapt to the cultures of Asia and to the diverse methods by which business is conducted in that part of the world.

An important point that Rohwer demonstrates is that Asia's societies offer the West something more than the promise of prosperity. The moral is that a revitalized Asia is not an occasion for alarm, but a chance for us to prosper and learn.
