5.0 out of 5 stars
Still one of the best, 11 July 2011
I don't quite understand the negative reviews here: this is still one of the best, as in: most insightful books on China yet. Somewhat too long in parts - most of these books are - but perfectly on the spot where it needs to be.
Together with McGregor's 'The Party' this is the book I recommend to anyone who wants to get a good overview of China's potential and its limits.
