Dalam catatan sejarah ekonomi dan politik modern pertama di seluruh Asia yang diceritakan dari sudut pandang orang Asia, Asia Reborn merangkaikan kisah yang meyakinkan tentang bagaimana negara-negara Asia mengatasi warisan dominasi Eropa di paruh pertama abad kedua puluh, untuk memulai perjalanan panjang menuju ekonomi yang stabil.
