Jonathan Freedland’s new thriller The Third Woman is set in a future in which the United States is in thrall to China. Freedland told the Guardian newspaper that his new book was inspired by Martin Jacques’s bestselling When China Rules the World which, according to the review in the Guardian, argues that ‘China has no interest in moving towards western-style democracy. Rather, its economic power will grow as it learns to operate “both within and outside the existing international system… sponsoring a new China-centric international system which will exist alongside the present system and probably slowly begin to usurp it”’.
