What People are Saying About This

Dani Rodrik

Eclipse is a fascinating read. Controversial, but meant to be, it has the potential to set the terms of our ongoing discussion on what is perhaps the hottest issue in the global economy—China's role. Its quantification of power alone will attract considerable interest. (Dani Rodrik, Professor of Economics, Harvard University and author of The Globalization Paradox.)

Mohamed El-Erian

Eclipse must be read for a refreshing and deep analysis of what may lie ahead. It is an extremely well written and thought provoking book. (Mohamed El-Erian, Chief Executive, PIMCO and award-winning author of When Markets Collide.)

Francis Fukuyama

Defying conventional wisdom, Eclipse not just vividly imagines, but provides a plausible scenario for, the replacement of the United States by China as the world's dominant economic power. It persuasively underlines the need for Washington to get its act together. (Francis Fukuyama, Stanford University and author of The End of History and the Last Man and The Origins of Political Order.)

Henry Kissinger

Subramanian makes a compelling point, which should receive wide attention.

Liaquat Ahamed

If you want to understand the true magnitude of the shift in economic power that is currently changing the world, Eclipse is the book to read—provocative, well argued and elegantly written. (Liaquat Ahamed, Pulitzer Prize winning author of Lords of Finance.)
