Walter Tevis's The Steps of the Sun

The author is famous for The Hustler and The Man Who Fell to Earth.

The Steps of the Son depicts an energy crisis in a world dominated by China. The book is dated in a 70s way, but I enjoyed it at the time and it's still worth a look afaic.

In Tevis's future China, men are emasculated and women are dominant.

Right prediction, wrong country?
