Product description

Review

'In the space of a generation China has risen from isolation and poverty to become a global power, but one we have no easy framework within which to understand. Liam Byrne's wide ranging study, grounded in his own experience as a politician, asks how fit for purpose UK policy is towards this major complex power, and finds it wanting. This book is a wake-up call for policy makers, business people, academics - anyone who needs to think and engage with China. And these days, as his book vividly shows, that means pretty much everyone.' (Kerry Brown, Former Head of Asia Programme, Chatham House)

'What a wake-up call! We really are at five-to-midnight as our country deals with Asia's century. Turning to Face the East sets out the 'how did we get here' and then the 'what can we do about it' and leaves hanging in the air the conclusion that every reader must reach about what will happen to us if we do nothing.' (Lord Digby Jones)

'Liam Byrne's book is a thoughtful and wide-ranging reflection on one of the most crucial economic issues facing Britain today. It will stimulate an important and much-needed debate on our future in an era of growing Chinese power.' (Rana Mitter, Professor of the History and Politics of Modern China, University of Oxford)
