Publisher's Summary

China today is visible everywhere: In the news, in the economic pressures battering America, in the workplace, and in every trip to the store. Provocative, timely, and essential, this dramatic account of China's growing dominance as an industrial super-power by journalist Ted C. Fishman explains how the profound shift in the global economic order has occurred, and why it already affects us all. How has an enormous country once hobbled by poverty and Communist ideology come to be the supercharged center of global capitalism? What does it mean that China now grows three times faster than the United States? That China uses 40 percent of the world's concrete and 25 percent of its steel? What is the global impact of 300 million rural Chinese walking off their farms and heading to the cities in the greatest migration in human history? Why do nearly all of the world's biggest companies now have large-scale operations in China? What does the corporate march into China mean for workers left behind in America, Europe, and the rest of the world?
Meanwhile, what makes China's emerging corporations so dangerously competitive? What could happen when China will be able to manufacture nearly everything, computers, cars, jumbo jets, and pharmaceuticals, that the United States and Europe can, at perhaps half the cost? How do these developments reach around the world and straight into the lives of all Americans?

China status update

If you are thinking of investing in China, you better read this first. This book tells both the progress and pitfalls of doing business in that country. It does a great job of expaining why things work the way they do in China. One thing that is very clear, when this "new" workforce is fully mobilized it will be a competitive force like the world has never seen.

Because this is a newly published book, it is a timely update on how China has broken into the 21st century and its implications for not only the US, but also the rest of the world.
The book is long and somewhat detailed, but very informative. The narration is similar to listening to a dull professor giving a lecture.
