About this book
With growing interest in China in the run up to the Beijing Olympics, this is an indispensable starting point to understanding the themes and controversies that have shaped modern China.
China today is never out of the news: from human rights controversies and the continued legacy of Tiananmen Square, to global coverage of the Beijing Olympics, and the Chinese 'economic miracle'. This Very Short Introduction provides an accessible guide to why China looks the way it does today, and how it got there.
