We know everything and nothing about China. We know that China is changing so fast that the maps in Shanghai need to be redrawn every two weeks. We know that China has brought 300 million people from agricultural backwardness into modernity in just thirty years, and that its impact on the global economy is growing at unprecedented speed. We have an image of China as a dictatorship; a nationalist empire that threatens its neighbors and global peace. But how many people know about the debates raging within China? What do we really know about the kind of society China wants to become? What ideas are motivating its citizens? We can name Americas neo-cons and the religious right, but cannot name Chinese writers, thinkers, or journalists-what is the future they dream o for their country, or for the world? Because Chinas rise-like the fall of Rome or the British Raj-will echo down generations to come, these are the questions we increasingly need to ask. Mark Leonard asks us to forget everything we thought we knew about China and start again. He introduces us to the thinkers who are shaping Chinas wide open future and opens up a hidden world of intellectual debate that is driving a new Chinese revolution and changing the face of the world.
