A shrewd and knowing book.” —Robert D. Kaplan, The Wall Street Journal 

A compelling and impressive read.” —The Economist 

Skillfully crafted and well-argued.” —Jeffrey Wasserstrom, Financial Times 

An excellent modern history. . . . provides the context needed tomake sense of the region’s present and future.” —Joyce Lau, South China Morning Post 

A history of the combative military,diplomatic, and economic relations among China, Japan, and the United States since the 1970s—and the potential crisis that awaits them


Richard McGregor’s Asia’s Reckoning is a compelling account of the widening geopolitical cracks in a region that has flourished under an American security umbrella for more than half a century. The toxic rivalry between China and Japan, two Asian giants consumed with endless history wars and ruled by entrenched political dynasties, is threatening to upend the peace underwritten by Pax Americana since World War II. Combined with Donald Trump’s disdain for America’s old alliances and China's own regional ambitions, east Asia is entering a new era of instability and conflict. If the United States laid the postwar foundations for modern Asia, now the anchor of the global economy, Asia’s Reckoning reveals how that structure is falling apart.


With unrivaled access to archives in the United States and Asia, as well as to many of the major players in all three countries, Richard McGregor has written a tale that blends the tectonic shiftsin diplomacy with bitter domestic politics and the personalities driving them.It is a story not only of an overstretched America, but also of the rise and fall and rise of the great powers of Asia. The about-turn of Japan—from acolossus seemingly poised for world domination to a nation in inexorable decline in the space of two decades—has few parallels in modern history, as does the rapid rise of China—a country whose military is now larger than those of Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and southeast Asia's combined.


The confrontational course on which China and Japan are set is no simple spat between neighbors: the United States would be involved on the side of Japan in any military conflict between the two countries. The fallout would be an economic tsunami, affecting manufacturing centers, trade routes, and political capitals on every continent. Richard McGregor’s book takes us behind the headlines of his years reporting as the Financial Times’s Beijing and Washington bureau chief to show how American power will stand or fall on its ability to hold its ground in Asia.


Richard McGregor

Richard McGregor served as the Washington Bureau Chief for the Financial Times, leading the newspaper’s coverage of American politics and managing its DC-based team of reporters from 2011 to 2014.

Previously, McGregor served as the FT’s deputy news editor in London, as well as Beijing bureau chief and Shanghai correspondent. Prior to joining the FT, he was the chief political correspondent and China and Japan correspondent for The Australian. He has also reported for the International Herald Tribune, the BBC and the Far Eastern Economic Review.

McGregor has won numerous awards throughout his nearly two decades of reporting from north Asia, including a 2010 Society of Publishers in Asia Editorial Excellence Award (Excellence in Reporting Breaking News category) for his coverage on the Xinjiang Riots and 2008 SOPA Awards for Editorial Intelligence (Excellence in Opinion Writing and Excellence in Feature Writing categories). He is author of The Party; The Secret World of China’s Communist Rulers (2010), described by The Economist as a “masterful depiction” of the Chinese political system. The Party was awarded the third annual Bernard Schwartz Prize by the Asia Society in New York in 2011 for nonfiction books making an outstanding contribution to understanding Asia. The Party also won the Mainichi Newspaper in Tokyo’s award for best book on the Asia-Pacific in 2011.
