Product description


A one-stop shop for everything you need to know about China and its dramatic transformation over the past two decades. David Shambaugh has brought together a terrific collection of China thinkers, both well-known and newer voices, from the United States, China, and elsewhere to share their insights on the most important domestic and foreign policy issues defining the Chinese experience." (Elizabeth E. Economy, C.V. Starr Senior Fellow and Director for Asia Studies, Council on Foreign Relations, and co-author of By All Means Necessary)

China's rise makes it increasingly urgent that all of us understand China's trajectory and its impact on the rest of the world. The China Reader places us right in the middle of the key debates about those topics. It is a great resource for anyone who wants to figure out the China puzzle." (Andrew J. Nathan, Class of 1919 Professor of Political Science, Columbia University)

In scope, speed, and significance, the rise of China challenges the ability of individuals and nations to understand and respond wisely. The sixth edition of The China Reader brings together a wide range of perspectives from China and the outside world that in one volume informs the reader, raises the big questions, and provides a broad base for objective and comprehensive understanding." (Ezra F Vogel, Harvard University, author of Deng Xiaoping and the Transformation of China)

An authoritative guide to the puzzles and controversies surrounding China's rise. Few readers, including China specialists, will fail to benefit from this fascinating volume" (Andrew Walder, Stanford University)
