About The Book

No country in the world, especially, India can afford to be ignorant of the happenings in China today. This book tells how China from a medieval underdeveloped nation in 1850 has risen to be a world leader by 2000 A.D. If the USA, the super power is apprehensive about any nation, it is China. China's economy has grown so large that it is poised to overtake other leading economies and can in course of time, challenge the US economy, the largest in the world today. The book tells the absorbing story of how China has risen miraculously to this world status in a matter of a little over five decades. Those interested in knowing about the rise of modern China cannot afford to miss it.
