About the Book

It has been 20 years since Kishore Mahbubani first took the bold step of asking the politically incorrect question, “Can Asians think?” His collection of essays has stood the test of time, continuing to resonate with both Asian and Western minds alike over two decades and four editions of the book.

This 20th-anniversary edition of Can Asians Think? provides an opportunity for all Asians, from East Asia to West Asia, from Central Asia to Southeast Asia, to reflect on how remarkable these past two decades – from 1998 to 2018 – have been for Asian history.

As Asia's recent experience shows, and as this volume documents, Asians can think. Perhaps the time has finally come for Western thinkers to learn from Asian thinking.

“This 20th anniversary edition of Can Asians Think?
provides an opportunity for all Asians, from East Asia to West Asia,
from Central Asia to Southeast Asia, to reflect on how remarkable these
past two decades – from 1998 to 2018 – have been for Asian history.”

– Kishore Mahbubani
