Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

China's emergence as a major international power is perhaps the most important development in world affairs of the 21st century. Now, this book provides an indispensable survey of that country, the world's largest-- a vast land with 1.4 billion people and the world's most dynamic economy.

Over the past year, Dr. Bates Gill, C. Fred Bergsten, Nicholas R. Lardy, and Derek Mitchell have led four task forces through a rigorous exercise of investigation and intelligence, compiling and analyzing the authoritative data on China's economy, foreign and domestic policy, and national security. Now that material has been shaped into an accessible narrative filled with facts, but written for the general reader. The expert judgements presented in China: The Balance Sheet will inform policymakers in Washintgon, scholars and the business community for years to come.

Book News Annotation:

Put together by the Center for Strategic and International Studies and the Institute for International Economics, this volume examines the prospects for Chinese economic, political, and military developments from the perspective of US interests. Chapters address the Chinese domestic economy, the process of Chinese political transformation, the role of China in the world economy, and Chinese foreign and security policy in turn.

Very topical book that offers broad discussions of a changing China in relation to global development. But its discussions are very much on the surface. The Authors are less penetrating on what is really inside Chinese business and political world. A far better read is this book by Chinese journalist George Zhibin Gu: China's global reach: markets, multinationals, and globalization
