Inhaltsangabe: China enters the 21st century as the world's largest surviving empire, a vast bureaucratic dictatorship with close to 1.3 billion people drawn from 56 different races. This text provides a general introduction to the Chinese, taking the reader on a journey from the poorest, those living in remote mountainous regions, to the most powerful families in the capital. In between it looks at how workers in state-owned enterprises and the new capitalists are navigating the transition from a planned to a market economy, and at who are the winners and losers in the scramble to make this new consumer market yield golden profits.
Über den Autor: Jasper Becker was the resident correspondent in China for the Manchester Guardian from 1985 to 1990. He has since reported on Chinese affairs for B.B.C. World Service, as well as for the Economist, and is now Beijing Bureau Chief for the South China Morning Post. His book Hungry Ghosts: Mao's Secret Famine was the winner of the Dutch P.I.O.O.M. award for human rights.
