From the Mekong River Basin to the Central Asian steppe, China is flexing its economic muscles for strategic ends.

And by funding and building roads, railways, ports and power linesa New Silk Road across Eurasia and through the South China Sea and Indian OceanChina aims to draw its neighbours ever tighter into its embrace. Combining a geopolitical overview with on-the-ground reportage from a dozen countries, iChina's Asian Dream/i offers a fresh perspective on one of the most important questions of our time: what does China's rise mean for the future of Asia?
