With the rendering of first-hand information from extraordinary historians in the East who are completely unknown to West and the juxtaposition of their insight and the events that are unfolding in today's all-controversial flashpoints around the globe - Britain, Europe, Russia, Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Egypt, the Arabian peninsula/Middle East, North Africa, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Central Asia, Indian-sub continent, South East Asia, China, Korea, the United States and Japan, or rather in one word, Eurasia - Tony Kosuge demonstrates through - his incredible analysis that the on-going global crisis we are facing today can be perceived as a visible historical movement spanning from the beginning of two world civilizations - the old East and the new West - and in light of the historical implication, how today's deteriorating diplomatic movements could eventually end up. Kosuge's intuition will no doubt surprise readers in that both the problem and the solution must come at a high price for the countries of the remaining East, in particular Japan, at the epicentre of this unprecedented turmoil.In facing the rapidly spreading crisis on a world-wide scale in this age of globalisation, Kosuge reveals why the West must be much more proactive in the process of restructuring diplomatic relations from an informed and truly global viewpoint, with the understanding of what sort of intellectual creation of a New World Order is required for the modernisation of the East and for the birth of a genuine international community to evade the ultimate catastrophe for our precious earth.
