A compelling look at the major changes in store as America faces increasing competition from two emerging Asian giants.

In the streets of India, camels pull carts loaded with construction materials, and monkeys race across roads, dodging cars. In China, men in Mao jackets pedal bicycles along newly built highways, past skyscrapers sprouting like bamboo. Yet exotic India is as near as the voice answering an 800 number for one dollar an hour. Communist China is as close as the nearest Wal-Mart, its shelves full of goods made in Chinese factories.

Not since the United States rose to prominence a century ago have we seen such tectonic shifts in global power; but India and China are vastly different nations, with opposing economic and political strategiesstrategies we must understand in order to survive in the new global economy. The Elephant and the Dragon tells how these two Asian nations, each with more than a billion people, have spurred a new "gold rush," and what this will mean for the rest of the world.

About the Author:

Robyn Meredith is a foreign correspondent for Forbes. An award-winning journalist, she was formerly a correspondent for the New York Times. She lives in Hong Kong.

From AudioFile:

Laural Merlington energetically navigates this densely packed overview of India and China and their rise to the status of economic powerhouses. Merlington does not allow herself to be rushed, despite the lengthy sentences, complex syntax, and detailed facts that characterize most of the chapters in this volume. She takes her time, enunciating every word, allowing listeners to process the minutia of historical data. Her bright inflection keeps the otherwise dry subject matter from fading into background noise or seeming self-evident in light of the contemporary focus on these Asian markets. Merlington creates an engaging audio history lesson for the otherwise faint of heart. M.R. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
