    Book Summary

    In the streets of India, camels pull carts, and monkeys race across roads. In China, men in Mao jackets pedal bicycles along newly built motorways, past skyscrapers sprouting like bamboo. This book tells how these two Asian nations, each with more than a billion people, have spurred a new "gold rush" and what this means for the rest of the world.

"The Elephant and the Dragon" tells how these two Asian nations, each with more than a billion people, have spurred a new "gold rush" and what this will mean for the rest of the world. read less...
