      • Nothing like this has ever happened before. A nation with a fifth of the world’s population has a bad 500 years. It is humiliated by barbarians; it lacerates itself; it sinks from torpor to anarchy. And then, in the space of a few decades, it steps forward. Its economy grows at a rate for which the word miraculous seems modest. Its culture shows a new vitality. Its armed forces modernize. And the rest of the word watches, impressed and nervous at the same time, wondering if the new giant still seethes with resentment about the half millennium in which it was slighted.
