In the 1980s, embracing capitalism to an increasing degree, China's economy grew at a rate of 9.5 percent. In 1992 it grew 12. 8 percent, rising to 13.4 percent in 1993. Cumulatively, this is the greatest sustained growth in human history. Even if it slows substantially it is likely to surpass the economy of the United States early in the twenty-first century.

Overholt, who holds a Ph.D. from Yale University, is a managing director of Bankers Trust Company in Hong Kong and the author of several books. Based in Hong Kong since 1985, he has traveled widely in China and has served as political adviser to several of Asia's major political figures. This book is his account of China's remarkable growth, told authoritatively and in unique detail by a close and astute observer.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A timely report on the growth of the world's most dynamic economy, as well as a forceful argument that, often, successful political reform can follow only in the wake of-or alongside with-economic reform." -- Kirkus Reviews
"Provocative. . . . Overholt's dissection of China's economic transformation is compelling." -- Wall Street Journal
"The next giant on the world scene will be China-and Overholt's incisive and provocative analysis will help to cope with its challenge." -- Zbigniew Brzezinski, Center for Strategic and International Studies
