Review

ADVANCE PRAISE for Can China Lead?:

William V. Hickey, retired Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Sealed Air Corporation—
Can China Lead? is a thoughtful and well-written perspective on the development of modern China, its emergence as an economic power, and its future outlook. This is a must-read for anyone doing business in China today and anyone interested in the leadership challenges that China will face going forward.”

Rodney Chase, former Deputy Group Chief Executive and Managing Director, BP plc—
“These Harvard and Wharton luminaries have written a challenging and disturbing assessment of modern-day China while brilliantly illuminating the country’s traumatic twentieth-century journey. While the authors express real doubts about China’s readiness to embrace a world leadership role anytime soon, this book will help all of us understand China just a little better.”

Karen Mills, former Administrator, US Small Business Administration—
“Entrepreneurship may be America’s ‘secret sauce,’ but it’s an essential part of China’s heritage as well. From a deep historical understanding, Can China Lead? asks what will happen when the Chinese and American entrepreneurial economies face off in a global marketplace.”

George Yeo, former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Singapore—
“The authors doubt that China can lead the world, admitting that China may not have any such ambition in the first place. Analyzing the country’s deep contradictions, this book will teach you how business is done in China—and it does so brilliantly.”

Tom Lee, Hughes M. Blake Professor of Management, Foster School of Business, University of Washington; former President, Academy of Management—
“One of the best books on China that I’ve read in a very long time.”
