    About this book

An essential title for understanding China on the cusp of the Olympic Games, China's Great Leap draws on expertise from the world's leading Chinese writers, China experts and human rights authorities. When Beijing first sought the Olympic Games, China was still recovering from the upheavals of Maoist rule and was in the midst of adapting to a market revolution. Today, China wants to engage with the outside world, but only on its own terms. China's Great Leap also examines how international pressure in conjunction with the Games will achieve human rights reforms.
