Will China emerge as the world's dominant power? Will missteps and missed Olympic opportunities set back reform and lead to detrimental effects for ordinary Chinese citizens? Read China's Great Leap for a clear understanding about how and why things in China will change and why some things never will.
This is not a book for anyone who wants to look at China from holistic perspectives that come from serious researches, as the author is a political anti-China activist, not a serious scholar, which obviously pre-sets the tone to this book.
