A second edition of this book is now available. Despite China's growing importance on the world stage, it is often and easily misunderstood. Indeed, there are many Chinas, as this sustained survey of contemporary China vividly illustrates. Offering the first comprehensive geography of the reform era, the authors trace the changes occurring in this ancient nation across both time and space. Beginning with China's diverse landscapes and environments, and continuing through its formative history and tumultuous recent past, this text places China in its international context as a massive "developing nation" that must meet the needs of its 1.3 billion citizens while becoming a major regional and global player. Through clear prose and abundant maps and photos, the book highlights the diverse landscapes, economies, and cultures that represent China today.
