Bookshop Barnie: Martin Jacques

Martin Jaques suggests that it is China's century. Come and argue about the hype and the reality.

Martin Jacques is visiting professor at Tsinghua University in Beijing. His recent book, When China Rules the World: the end of the Western world and the birth of a new global order, suggests that this is China’s century. Indeed, its economic performance seems to vindicate his analysis. But then again, between 1960 and 1972, the Greek economy grew at 8% p.a. (more than China’s projections for 2011-2015). Come and argue about the hype and the reality.
