Heading into the second decade of the 21st century, an era marked indelibly by globalization, the world is witnessing a shift from the West’s dominance led by the United States, to the rise of Asia led by China. Niall Ferguson, a professor of history at Harvard University was blunt in a commentary “In China’s Orbit” Nov. 18, 2010: “What we are living through now is the end of 500 years of Western predominance. This time the Eastern challenger is for real, both economically and geopolitically. The gentlemen in Beijing may not be the masters just yet. But one thing is certain: They are no longer the apprentices.” Download the 2012 Global Connections Edition of U.S./China Media Brief now.
