The great geopolitician, Halford J. Mackinder, had the dream that Monsoon Asia, when it grows to prosperity, will balance those who “live between Missouri and the Yenisei.” In Asia in Post-Western Age, Niraj Kumar offers a vivid picture of the global distribution of material power and the emergence of three pan-regions, envisaged by German Nazi geopolitician, Karl Haushofer, fuelled by the logic of regionalised globalisation. These pan-regions will be glued by corresponding Pan-Ideas of Atlanticism, Eurasianism and Asianism. The trialectics between these three pan-regions will establish harmony and balance. The diplomacy in multipolar world will no longer be deciphered through the sports metaphor of chess, football or boxing, but the universal game of hopscotch.
Asia in Post-Western Age is an indispensable interdisciplinary work about contemporary global conflicts as well as future trends, and proposes a way to establish Kant’s “perpetual peace.”

Niraj Kumar is the author of a classic work on Asian Integration, Arise Asia—Respond to White Peril (2003). His recently published works include, Sri Yantra and the Geophilosophy of India (2014), and Rainbow of Indian Civilization (2014).
“Asia in Post-Western Age is a fascinating book telling us the change in future international configuration. Niraj Kumar crafted a comparative framework on the studies of Atlanticism, Eurasianism and Asianism. His analysis expands our understanding of the future integration of a broad Asia. This book is a high-quality strategic study and can be recommended to policymakers and strategic analysts, especially those of Asian countries.” —Professor Yan Xuetong (Author of Ancient Chinese Thought, Modern Chinese Power.)
