Despite China's obvious and growing importance on the world stage,
it is often and easily misunderstood. Indeed, there are many
Chinas, as this comprehensive survey of contemporary China vividly
illustrates. Now in a thoroughly revised and updated editionthat
offers the only sustained geography of the reform era, this book
traces the changes occurring in this powerful and 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, the authors present
contemporary China as a product of both internal and external
forces of past and present. They trace current and future successes
and challenges while placing China in its international contextas a
massive, still-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 new, dynamic maps and photos,
China's Geography illustrates and explains the greatdifferences in
economy and culture found throughout China's many regions.
