China is now the most powerful country on earth - its manufacturing underpins the world’s economy; its military is growing at the fastest rate of any nation and its leader - Xi Jinping - is now to set the pace and tone of world affairs for decades.


Last month Xi Jinping became part of the constitution – an honour not seen since Chairman Mao, the founder of Modern China. This means he will rule China for decades, and what he does and what he thinks will shape all our futures.


Here, in an accessible and readable style, China expert Kerry Brown guides us through The World According to Xi: his plans to make China the most powerful country on earth, to eradicate poverty and even solve climate change. We find out his belief system, what he really thinks about the communist China he leads, and how far he is willing to go to defend it.
