Grade 8 Up–In 28 (mostly brief) articles or excerpts, writers make arguments for and against China's progress toward democracy, military threat (especially to Taiwan), developing economy, and major crises (environmental, health, governance). A preface to each chapter and three questions preceding each entry help keep readers focused. Jargon is minimal; clarifications appear in brackets, eliminating most footnotes. Periodical bibliographies follow each section, and a dozen discussion questions, an annotated list of contact organizations, and a book bibliography end the volume. Sources are mostly 2003-2005 and range from The Economist to Time International, the Wall Street Journal, Foreign Affairs, the New York Times, and state organs of China itself. A great resource for critical reading, debate, papers, and discussion.–Patricia D. Lothrop, St. George's School, Newport, RI
