"Let China sleep, for when she wakes, she will shake the world." Napoleons words seem eerily prescient today, as the shock waves from Chinas awakening reverberate across the globe. Award-winning journalist James Kynge takes measure of the tremors made as Chinas ravenous hunger for jobs, raw materials, energy, and food -- and its export of goods, workers, and investments -- drastically reshapes world trade and politics. Through dramatic stories of entrepreneurs and visionaries, factory workers and store clerks, Kynge describes the breakneck rise of China, the extraordinary problems the country now faces, and the consequences of both. He details the variety of Chinas deep and systemic weaknesses -- fraud and corruption, environmentalcrises, faltering government institutions, an aging population -- that threaten even greater global disruptions. As Thomas Friedman did in The Lexus and the Olive Tree, Kynge gives us a lucid and necessary account of a far-reaching phenomenon.

James Kynge has been a journalist in Asia for 20 years, covering many of the big events that have helped shape the region, including the Tiananmen Square massacre in Beijing and the bursting of the Japanese 'bubble' in the late 1980s. For seven years he was China Bureau Chief of the Financial Times in Beijing, and is now the Pearson Group's chief representative in China.
