China’s Long March to the 21st Century

China specialists Orville Schell and John Delury explain how China, after a long and painful period of dynastic decline, intellectual upheaval, foreign occupation, civil war, and revolution, managed to emerge on the world stage with hyper-development and wealth creation. Their book Wealth and Power: China’s Long March to the Twenty-first Century examines the lives of 11 influential officials, writers, activists, and leaders whose contributions helped create modern China.
