Let China sleep, for when she wakes, she will shake the world.” Napoleon’s words seem eerily prescient today, as the shock waves from China’s awakening reverberate around the globe. Award-winning journalist James Kynge takes measure of the tremors made as China’s 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 the people who are driving China's transformation 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.
