China has enjoyed heroic growth rates in the last twenty five years of reform and transition, pulling more people out of poverty more quickly than at any other time in human history. Nonetheless these successes have had costs: today China is faced with increasing environmental difficulties and there is a dangerous level of inequality of income and wealth leading to large numbers of often violent disputes and demonstrations in the countryside.

This book discusses the very latest issues relating to China's remarkable economic growth.  It provides comprehensive coverage of these issues, including economic, political-economic, environmental and philosophical questions, presenting material in as non-technical a way as possible.  The issues discussed reflect key concerns within China itself at present.  These focus not just on how to sustain fast rates of economic growth but also on how to solve the problems resulting from  it, problems including widening levels of income equality, new forms of environmental degradation to include water shortages, health issues, governance dilemmas and new problems for the banking, strategic industrial and agricultural sectors. 

This book not only encompasses the current socio-economic situation in China, accepting its strengths while highlighting dilemmas, but also provides suggestions for policy. As such, it reflects a growing recognition in China that the attainment of both continued strong economic growth and a greater degree of social harmony are mutually interdependent: that one will not be achieved without the other.
