Reviews

"This book by Rajiv Biswas is apt and timely as Asia and in particular the ASEAN region emerges to the fore. His clear explanation of the key forces driving growth in Asia makes this compelling reading. Rajiv shares his deep knowledge and insights of the region with the readers of the book." - Tan Sri Dr. Michael Yeoh, Chief Executive Officer & Director, Asian Strategy & Leadership Institute (ASLI)

"I really enjoyed this book. An overview of Asia's recent history with emphasis on decolonization, analysis of the current economic picture, and a good, well-argued prediction backed up with facts of what we will see in the future. Here you get it all... written in a clear and lucid prose." - Joergen Oerstroem Moeller, Adjunct Professor Singapore Management University & Copenhagen Business School and Former State Secretary, Royal Danish Foreign Ministry, Former Ambassador of Denmark to Singapore, Brunei, Australia, and New Zealand
