The Writing on the Wall: China and the West in the 21st Century

Front Cover
Little, Brown, 2006 - China - 431 pages
China's effect on our lives is reflected in our house prices, the inequality of our wages, and the prices we pay for goods in shops. Yet China is burdened by a weak enterprise system, corruption, growing social protest, and environmental degradation. The author shows how the contradictions are fundamentally disabling, and argues that China must embrace the mechanisms that make business and government accountable to the people -- from a free press to representational government.
