In the first book to use the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) as a point of departure to explain why and how China is about to supersede America with regard to influence and power in Asia—and around the world—international relations expert Sarwar Kashmeri describes the scope of BRI, explains the strategy behind it, and forcefully argues that the BRI is becoming the foundation of nothing less than a parallel world order based on the Chinese leadership. Noting that the United States seems curiously incapable or uninterested in devising a counterstrategy, Kashmeri reminds us that even though the United States will no longer have the largest economy in the world, it will still be a powerful and rich country with global alliances that should be capable of a strategic response. In the absence of leadership in the nation’s capital, Kashmeri has done us all a great favor in pointing the way to a coherent plan in which Americans lose far less than they might otherwise.
