This book offers an unique authoritative view of the development of China as a threat over 40 years.The astonishing and long predicted rise of China requires a point of view that takes in both the Maoist and modern Chinese politics. George Walden was one of the few Western diplomats in China in 1964 who spoke Chinese. In this powerful book, he shows how to understand that China's point of view is always long-term - in 1950 Mao warned Russia that its policies would bring the collapse of Soviet communism. We compare the country to Britain or the United States at our peril. The Chinese juggernaut that has launched on to the world stage is without any precedent in human history. Every year 30 million Chinese people move to the cities, and the cities themselves are the size of nations; Shanghai is larger than Japan. The only way to grasp what our future with China is going to be like for the next 30 years is to describe it on its own terms.
