    A brilliant, but dry academic , book that pulls the curtain back on what is going on within China Instead of focusing on the growth and macroeconomics this focuses on what is going on, financially and politically, behind the scenes The author comes to the conclusion the hype surrounding China is pretty much ludicrousthough they d not use such hyperbolic language The political, economics, and social predation is on a scale so obscene that it isn t whether or not how high China will rise but how low it will fall Stagnation is the kind outlook.implosion may be accurate I m of the opinion China will be a player but not on the scale which is now expected by China watchers like Nial Fergusonand his one note obsession with the country A very worthwhile read.though quite dry.
