In Association with
The 2008 Olympic Games in China showcased a stunning new reality:
China is no longer an emerging power; China is a superpower!
Already the world’s leading manufacturing nation, China will have the
second largest economy by the end of this decade. Of Wal-Mart’s 6,000
leading suppliers, 5,000 are in China! China holds $1.3 trillion in
foreign debt, underwriting the U.S. budget deficit and threatening to
take the American economy hostage.
China’s reformers have discarded Mao’s brand of communism for free
enterprise, the rule of law, and open local elections. Yet China’s
leaders remain authoritarian, ruthlessly suppressing democracy in the
People’s Republic. How long the people will accept rule by a communist
elite is one of the fascinating questions explored in these pages.
China faces immense environmental, political, social, and economic
problems, but the willingness of its leaders and its people to
undertake every challenge provides an example for developed and
developing nations alike. While the United States squanders its
international prestige in Iraq, the world is turning increasingly to
China for leadership.
As exciting as a novel and informative as the best history, China: From the First Chinese to the
Olympics is the enthralling story of the world’s most populous
nation from the ancient past to the vibrant present.
