China’s Belt and Road strategy is acknowledged to be the most ambitious geopolitical initiative of the age. Covering almost seventy countries by land and sea, it will affect every element of global society, from shipping to agriculture, digital economy to tourism, politics to culture. Most importantly, it symbolises a new phase in China’s ambitions as a superpower: to remake the world economy and crown Beijing as the new centre of capitalism and globalisation.

Bruno Maçães traces this extraordinary initiative’s history, highlighting its achievements to date, and its staggering complexity. He asks whether Belt and Road is about more than power projection and profit. Might it herald a new set of universal political values, to rival those of the West? Is it, in fact, the story of the century?

MEDIA REVIEWS

'China’s emerging mastery of the Eurasian trade zone is described in visionary, granular detail.'

‘Maçães . . . is one of our chaotic times’ most fertile brains . . . across Asia things are on the move, in large part because of Chinese ambition, and he is right to be excited about it.’

'Stimulating.'

‘A masterful overview of China’s Belt and Road project . . . it’s a fascinating, intriguing and terrifying story, and Maçães tells it superbly.’

‘The author has an engaging, animated writing style . . . recommended reading for those who are curious about who will rule the world when the US empire recedes.’

'This is a remarkably insightful and comprehensive review of China's Belt and Road Initiative, with all its implications for economic development as well as for the reshaping of the global order. America and Europe: take note! This is essential reading for us all.' - Stephen Green, former chairman of HSBC

'This book shows the impressive and ambitious planning of a project that would redraw the map of the global economy to put China at the centre with a transnational industrial strategy of value chain dominance.'

'Bruno Macaes writes with great felicity on the expansive Chinese effort to transform the global order. His insights capture a critical moment in the evolution of world politics.'

‘Bruno Macaes describes a changing world order with great verve and clarity. 'Belt and Road' is a vital compass for this change, describing how the formation of 'Eurasia' and the creation of world changing trading routes reset the allocation of economic and political influence.’

'In Belt and Road, Bruno Maçāes sees the reach and influence of the West diminishing over the next thirty years.' - The Financial Times

'A timely output … It will be helpful to China scholars as well as students who are keen to understand and undertake research in this area.’ - Asian Affairs Journal
