'There is no story bigger than China's rise and its impact on the United States and the world in the 21st Century. With China's astonishing changes, both in speed and in substance, it seems hard for the China scholarship to catch up. As there is indeed a tremendous need to comprehend the complexity of China's development and the challenges and opportunities it presents, we should welcome this new addition to our understanding of what is going on in China. This volume provides such a timely analysis. The editors carefully selected the topics and authors and made it a rich collection, with issues ranging from China's policy shift to the Internet in China.' - Xiaobo Hu, Professor of Political Science, Director of Clemson University Center for China Studies 'This is a very timely collection of well-written, insightful essays examining both the domestic politics and foreign policy of contemporary China. This book will be useful for any person wishing to better understand China in the twenty-first century.' - Joseph Fewsmith, Boston University, USA
