  • Examines the modern history, politics, economy, and thriving cultural scene of contemporary China, and its relations with the wider world
  • Covers a range of social issues from the position of women in society, to the influence of television and film, and the role of the overseas Chinese disapora
  • Includes accounts of many prominent figures, such as the Communist leaders, the last emperors, and writers and artists
  • Offers a guide to the themes and controversies that have shaped modern China

 
China today is never out of the news: from international finance to human rights controversies, global coverage of its rising international presence, and the Chinese 'economic miracle'. It seems to be a country of contradictions: a peasant society with some of the world's most futuristic cities, heir to an ancient civilization that is still trying to find a modern identity. 

This Very Short Introduction offers the reader an entry to understanding the world's most populous nation, giving an integrated picture of modern Chinese society, culture, economy, politics, and art. In this new edition, Rana Mitter addresses China's current global position, accounting for the country's growth in global significance over the past decade.
