9780393331936: The Elephant and the Dragon: The Rise of India and China and What It Means for All of Us

"A comprehensive primer on the development of these Asian tigers."―Noam Lupu, San Francisco Chronicle

The Elephant and the Dragon is the essential guide to understanding how India and China are reshaping our world. With labor now unbound from geographic borders, we're seeing startling shifts in how―and where―nearly everything we buy is made. In a compelling mix of history and on-the-ground reporting, veteran journalist Robyn Meredith untangles the complex web of business and politics, as well as environmental and cultural issues that entwine India, China, and the West. She also outlines how Americans―business leaders, workers, politicians, even parents―can understand the vast changes coming and thrive in this new age.

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
