China's spectacular growth and expanding global role have led to visions of the 21st century being dominated by the last major state on earth ruled by a Communist Party. In this new edition of his widely acclaimed book, renowned China expert Jonathan Fenby shows why such assumptions are wrong. He presents an analysis of China under Xi Jinping which explores the highly significant political, economic, social and international challenges it faces, each involving structural difficulties that will put the system under strain.

Based on the author's extensive knowledge of contemporary China and his close analysis of Xi's leadership, this incisive book offers a pragmatic view of where the country is heading at a time when its future is too important an issue for wishful theorizing.

Jonathan Fenby is a former editor of the Observer and South China Morning Post and a founding partner and Managing Director of Trusted Sources research service. He is the author of several popular books on China, including the acclaimed Tiger Head, Snake Tails and The Penguin History of Modern China.

PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION An excellent, current guide to the challenges and dangers ahead for modern China. Robert B. Zoellick, Former President of the World Bank Group, U.S. Trade Representative & U.S. Deputy Secretary of State PRAISE FOR THE SECOND EDITION Fenby's new edition penetratingly punctures the myth that China is on the verge of becoming a major world power - to the contrary, the author identifies a plethora of factors that holds China back in its quest for greatness. His sobering analysis is not pessimistic, it is realistic. All analysts - from scholars to investment fund managers to government officials - would do well to carefully read this book. David Shambaugh, The George Washington University and author of China's Future A concise, eloquent and hard-hitting corrective to claims about China's coming world dominance by one of the country's most astute observers.
