In his penetrating new book, well-known Asia expert Vasuki Shastry argues that while Asia's reckoning may have been the subject of speculation before the pandemic, Covid-19 has made that inevitable. Inspired by Dante's "Inferno," Shastry takes readers on a journey through modern Asia's eight circles of hell. Shastry challenges conventional thinking about Asia's place in the world and the book is essential reading for those with an interest in the continent's future.
