Book News
Drawing from a career as an American scholar and consultant, Starr offers a succinct reference to China after the reforms of Deng Xaioping. He provides background material, basic data, and an analysis of what he sees as China's crisis-ridden present situation. His goal is to let readers judge whether the Chinese political system is capable of dealing with problems such as the Taiwan issue, the future of Hong Kong, maintaining economic growth in a changing political climate, and the orderly succession of political leadership.
