In this landmark work of investigative reporting, former "Financial Times" correspondent Alexandra Harney uncovers a story of immense significance to us all: how China's factory economy gains a competitive edge by selling out its workers, environment, and future. Harney's firsthand reporting brings us face-to-face with a world in which intense pricing pressure from Western companies combines with ubiquitous corruption and a lack of transparency to exact a staggering toll in human misery and envionmental damage. This eye-opening expose offers, for the first time, an intimate look at the defining business story of our time.
