This book looks but tangentially at the distant future, being devoted primarily to understanding the emergence of modern Pacific Asia from the nineteenth century to the present. Historians can point to several, perhaps many such "Pacific" eras over millennia in which Asians interacted on a broad scale but surely none has been as globally significant as the present one. By reviewing and integrating the past with the present we are better able to understand why Pacific Asia, after more than a century of conflict and subjugation by the West, has revived with such force and dynamism.
