Becker is the ideal guide to the profound changes within China that are reshaping global economic, diplomatic, and military strategies.

He weaves analysis with anecdotes to address today's pressing uncertainties: How will China cope with pollution, unemployment, and demand for energy?

What form will its government take? Can Shanghai's success with urban capitalism be replicated elsewhere?

Each chapter focuses on a specific region and its local issues-minority unrest, poverty, corruption-then places them in the broader context of China society as a whole.

Vividly illustrated with photographs that capture the paradox of an ancient culture remaking itself into a dynamic consumer society, Dragon Rising is a wonderfully written, well-rounded, wide-ranging portrait of China's problems and prospects.
