An excellent piece on China,
This review is from: The Party: The Secret World of China's Communist Rulers (Hardcover)
This is a very well written book by someone who has lived his subject, not just researched it. From the perspective of someone who wants to know far more about China and its prospects, but with only skin-deep current knowledge, this fills in some of the bigger gaps. In execution, the author has looked at major events and developments, and shows how the CP both reacted and evolved as a result. A fascinating insight into one of today's economic powerhouses, but with no hyperbole and with a healthy dose of realism. China is almost an enigma, and this book helps to uncover why it is what it is, and also the problems it faces in the future. Highly recommended.
