9780753513491: China Rises

With a population of one billion people and the world's second largest economy, China is fast becoming one of the most powerful and important countries in the world. But while it is one of the world's oldest civilizations, China refuses to conform to expectations. The country's controversial policies, ranging from the one-child policy to the repression of opposition groups, have placed it at odds with other world powers, and yet its influence in the world is growing ever stronger. This guide explores the changing face of modern China and its fundamental contradictions, as a communist state where business is booming, as a nation that continues to support North Korea even as it develops its relationships with the West. Getting to the heart of these and other inconsistencies, Farndon gives a fascinating introduction to the country as it is now and as it will be in the future, revealing how China's changing face will affect the world.

From the Back Cover:

In the 5th century BC, the Great Wall of China demonstrated the power and vision of one of the oldest human civilisations.

In the 21st century, with a population of 1¼ billion people and the world’s second largest economy, many commentators are predicting China will be the next global superpower.

John Farndon explores the changing shape of modern China and its fundamental contradictions, as a communist state where business is booming, as a nation that continues to support North Korea even as it develops its relationships with the West. Despite alienating other world powers with its controversial policies, China’s influence in the world is growing ever stronger. Getting to the heart of the inconsistencies, Farndon gives an absorbing introduction to a developing superpower, and reveals the future in which China’s changing face will affect us all.
