A Welcome Message from Kishore Mahbubani

The past two centuries of Western domination of world history have been a major historical aberration. All aberrations end eventually. Asia will return to centre stage again. However, many leading global minds cannot understand this because their mental maps have been trapped by narrow Western worldviews. The main goal of my writings is to awaken the world to the completely different historical era we are entering. My writings may take you out of your comfort zone but I hope they will help you to understand how different this century will be from previous centuries.
