"The China Reader: The Reform Era is a compilation by two astute China watchers of the most important documents, articles, and statements on China from 1972 to the present. Here are the voices of the experts, from Chinese analyses of the fall of Soviet Communism to Western exposes of an ecological crisis that threatous global weather patterns into the next millennium. Here, too, are the artifacts of an era, from regulations to control Chinese cyber-space to a Party member's Orwellian justification of the military crackdown in Tiananmen Square. The China Reader is a guide to understanding a nation in the throes of change - a historic moment with profound implications for policy makers and markets from the Pacific Rim to Wall Street."--BOOK JACKET
