"The need to understand China has never been more pressing. Within one generation, the global giant has transformed from an impoverished, repressive state into an economic and political powerhouse; yet conflicting impressions of the country and its leaders abound. In this fully updated second edition of China in the 21st Century, Jeffrey Wasserstrom, with assistance from Maura Cunningham, provides cogent answers to the most urgent questions regarding the superpower and offers a framework for understanding its meteoric rise. Covering everything from Confucius and Mao to internet censorship and what to expect in China's future, this is an essential introduction to one of the most significant players on the world stage"--Page [4] of cover.
