Chinese society laid bare!, 7 Dec 2000
China, still in the process of its second period of modernisation, and the progress of its multi-faceted society are desribed simply and succintly in this book by Stockman. Look no further for a basic overview of what is happening in today's China from every perspective - from economics, social status, culture, politics, the people and their changing situations. Highly recommended together with Joy Hendry's 'Understanding Japanese Society' as an introductory insight into an large area of the globe soon to make a large impact on the rest of us.
