Authoritative account by leading China expert on how China's economic rise and how it will affect the world

Blackwell North Amer
This book elucidates China's rise from the inside out. It describes the people and the places behind the transformation of the world's most populous nation and shows how the emergence of an outsized appetite is convulsing the world. China Shakes the World recognises the manifold strengths of an industrializing power, but it also shows that not all Chinese graphs point upward. In fact, many of the influences felt in Europe and America are the manifestations of profound weaknesses.
Ultimately, though, the question raised by China's ascent comes down to compatibility. Can the West accommodate a country that is in its character and convictions very different from the world created under Pax Americana since the end of World War Two?
