From the Back Cover:

This is a concise and timely book on a hugely important topic– China in the twenty-first century. Peter Nolan argues thatChina faces a series of complex problems, most of which are theconsequence of its rapid growth since the process of ‘reformand opening up’ began in the late 1970s. Among the challengesfacing the leadership are issues of poverty and inequality, theglobal business revolution, the environment, the capability androle of the state, international relations, the Communist Party andthe economy. The way in which it responds to these will determinethe country’s pattern of development for a long periodahead.

While there are several paths open to it, Nolan argues thatChina has historically developed its own ‘Third Way’between state and market, and that this is the only rationalsolution to the challenges it faces in the twenty-firstcentury.
