In this groundbreaking book Kent E. Calder argues that a new transnational configuration is emerging in Asia, driven by economic growth, rising energy demand, and the erosion of longstanding geopolitical divisions. What Calder calls the New Silk Road—with a strengthening multi-faceted relationship between East Asia and the Middle East at its core—could eventually emerge as one of the world’s most important multilateral configurations. Straddling the border between comparative politics and international relations theory, this important book will stimulate debate and discussion in both fields.

Kent E. Calder is Edwin O. Reischauer Professor and Director of the Edwin O. Reischauer Center for East Asian Studies at the School of Advanced International Studies, Johns Hopkins University.  The author of Pacific Alliance: Reviving U.S.–Japan Relations, Calder lives in Princeton, NJ.

"The New Continentalism chronicles the rise of a new geopolitical configuration, a Eurasian land mass increasingly integrated by energy and trade, where American influence is increasingly marginalized. It is important reading for American policymakers trying to confront the newly emerging world."—Francis Fukuyama, Olivier Nomellini Senior Fellow, Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies, Stanford University


"Kent Calder's The New Continentalism paints a sobering profile of the emerging post-Iraq changes that we face across Eurasia, and the importance of energy policy in meeting them.”—Walter Mondale, Former Vice President of the United States
