Heine’s “Xi-na in the Century of the Dragon” Reviewed by “Foreign Affairs Latinoamérica”

Foreign Affairs Latinoamérica, the Latin American edition of the regarded Foreign Affairs journal, has published a review of Xi-Na in the Century of the Dragon: What Everyone Should Know About China, the latest book by Jorge Heine, Research Professor at Boston University’s Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies and Interim Director of the Frederick S. Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future.

In the review, author Jose Luis Bernal breaks down Heine’s book, which seeks to explain the “Chinese miracle” and the country’s astronomical rise on the world stage. Heine’s work is applauded for interpreting China‘s growth outside the perspective of “Western visions” or from circles associated with Chinese government-backed propaganda.  

An excerpt:

For analysts and decision-makers in Latin America, this work is an important contribution to understanding the coming era, which we can already call the “Asian century” and, more specifically, as the century of pre-eminence of China, “the century of the dragon.”

The full review can be read on Foreign Affairs Latinoamérica‘s website.
