China has dominated the news for nearly a decade now and will continue to grab the headlines as it moves inexorably towards becoming the world's largest economy. It already has the largest middle class in the world; the largest internet user population in the world; the largest army in the world; and has outstripped even America as the largest polluter in the world-all with pressing consequences for humanity. But China's Communist Party will not rule the world any time soon. It is still learning to adapt to the laws of other lands in which it has overseas investments; feels out how to meet international guidelines and standards of product safety and customer service quality; seeks to maintain stability and control of an increasingly rambunctious society; and deals with the dearth of land, water and mineral resources already sapping its economic development prospects.
China Inside Out: 10 Irreversible Trends Reshaping China and its Relationship with the World investigates the social and economic forces unleashed in China's drive to modernization. Bill Dodson presents the stories of average Chinese workers, along with interviews with topical experts, interlaced with his own experiences. The end result is an insider's view into the dramatic forces reshaping China, its identity, and its place in a new world order as it elbows America and Europe aside.
