A collection of essays by key experts on China’s development and her future role in the world. The rise of China as an economic power, perhaps the mightiest economic power the world has yet seen, is a matter impinging more and more upon the consciousness of British opinion formers and decision-makers. And yet we know very little about the social, institutional and environmental issues of the country. We don’t study its languages. And we don’t understand its approach to trading and economic issues, or engage with its geopolitical agenda. The contributions in this monograph offer a wide ranging appraisal of the impact that China’s breathtaking growth is having, and will continue to have in years to come, upon Britain’s economy, culture and politics.
