Title: China Questions: Critical Insights into a Rising Power

After years of isolation, China is now center stage as an economic and global power, but its rise has triggered wildly divergent views. Is it a model of business efficiency or a threat to American prosperity and security? Thirty-six of the world's leading China experts from Harvard University's renowned Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies answer key questions about this new superpower, distilling a lifetime of scholarship into short and accessible essays about Chinese identity, society, culture, history, and economic and foreign policy. Their contributions provide essential insight into the challenges China faces, the aspirations of its people and leaders, and the consequences of its meteoric ascent.

\"Sound bites about China, spoken by either the media or politicians, can fall into the trap of oversimplification... This book] provides a more nuanced and accessible perspective of the issues China is facing.\"
--South China Morning Post

\"Should be on the shelf of anyone seeking to understand this fast-rising superpower.\"
--Ian Johnson, author of The Souls of China

\"A highly informative, readable collection for scholars and nonscholars alike.\"
