Since December 2006, The Atlantic Magazine's James Fallows has been writing some of the most discerning accounts of the economic and political transformation occurring in China. The ten essays collected here cover a wide range of topics: from visionary tycoons and TV-battling entrepreneurs to environmental pollution and how China subsidizes the American economy. Fallows expertly and lucidly explains the economic, political, social and cultural forces at work turning China into a world superpower at breakneck speed. This eye-opening and cautionary account is essential reading for all concerned not only with China's but America's future role in the world.
