Rate this:
With contributions from some of the most well-respected and experienced Chinese writers, journalists, and organizers, China's Great Leap examines the People's Republic of China today as its government and 1.3 billion people prepare for the 2008 Olympic Games. When Beijing first sought the Games, China was still recovering from the upheavals of Maoist rule and adapting to a market revolution. Today, China wants to engage with the outside world--while fully controlling the engagement. How will the new leaders in Beijing manage the Olympic process and the internal and external pressures for reform.
