From the Publisher:
From the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists and authors of China Wakes comes this insightful and comprehensive look at Asia on the rise.

The recent economic crisis in Asia heaped devastation upon millions. Yet Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn argue that it was the best thing that could have happened to Asia. It destroyed the cronyism, protectionism, and government regulation that had been crippling Asian business for decades, and it left in its wake a vast region of resilient and determined millions poised to wrest economic, diplomatic and military power from the West. Thunder from the East is a riveting look at a complex region, a fascinating panoply of compelling characters, and a prophetic analysis from arguably the West's most informed and intelligent writers on Asia.
Two Pulitzer Prize-winning correspondents with The New York Times offer an incisive and timely study of Asia and the diverse ways in which the continent is reshaping world affairs, tracing the origins and impact of the Asian financial crisis, the growing roles of women in the region, and the region's increasing economic, diplomatic, and military influence. 35,000 first printing.From the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists and authors of China Wakes comes this insightful and comprehensive look at Asia on the rise.

A Pulitzer prize-winning journalistic team uses alternating chapters of trenchant analysis and revealing profiles to tell the history of old Asia and to evaluate the prospects for that region's emergence as an economic super-power.

Praise

New York Times
"...Mr. Kristof and Ms. WuDunn have given us an impressive and well-researched study of the world's most important area. Their insights are illuminated by their good reporting." - Frank Gibney 09/22/2000

New York Times Book Review
"WuDunn is the more elegant writer. Kristof the more ferocious reporter. Their combined work yields a most memorable portrait of modern Asia." - Robert Kagan 10/01/2000

Industry Standard
"Writing in alternate chapters...the authors break their subject into the sort of intellectual bites one might find in an international relations class [and] They explore each topic through a series of the people they have met over the years. Such an approach not only allows for a bracing amount of perplexity and ambiguity, it also makes for terrific reading." - Luke Mitchell 10/02/2000
