This chapter compares America and China in terms of their perspectives about democracy and politics. It first considers how China has struggled to let go of dynastic monarchy as a form of government, or to understand politics in the West due to inadequate intellectual resources. It then looks at how political choices and exertions of the political entity have led to a remarkable transformation of the Chinese economy over the past three decades. It also examines the impact of democracy on India.

Keywords:   democracy, politics, America, China, government, West, economy, India
