Product description

Review

'Using his intimate knowledge and experience of China, Timothy Beardson details the multiple challenges and structural vulnerabilities facing the country as its leaders seek to entrench the remarkable economic gains of the past thirty years. 'Stumbling Giant' is a provocative and thoughtful book, which puts forward a number of valuable suggestions to manage China's transition to the rank of the world's largest middle-income country.' --Robin Niblett, Director of Chatham House (The Royal Institute of International Affairs)

'Concise, readable....a thoughtful reconsideration of China's actual place in the new world order, based on reality rather than fanciful speculation.' --Kirkus Reviews

'A subtle, searching look at China which replaces the hoopla with a sober. trenchant and long overdue analysis of the Middle Kingdom's myriad political and economic problems. Timothy Beardson is a seasoned observer, who knows how to unearth the long-term trends behind the breathless headlines.' --Josef Joffe, Senior Fellow & Visiting Professor, Stanford University and Publisher-Editor of Die Zeit.

'This is not a pessimistic work, in spite of its title....it is a cool assessment of the overall weight of threats, not ammunition for a bit of dinner party China-bashing' --Leo Lewis, The Times Saturday Review 'Book of the Week'

'Timothy Beardson is a brilliant entrepreneur and investment strategist and his observations about China are sobering and a must-read for the well-informed.' --Steve Forbes, Chairman & Editor-in-Chief, Forbes Media
