You're no idiot, of course. You know that China has emerged from a long, turbulent history to become a major force in the global community. To know today's China you have to know its past. But you don't have to memorize every dynasty! The Complete Idiot's Guide to Modern China will show you exactly how China has survived - and even thrived - after the end of imperial rule through the reign of Mao and into the twenty-first century. In this Complete Idiot's Guide, you get the complete story behind China's shaky relations with Taiwan and its harsh rule in Tibet and Xinjiang, a look at important Chinese cities including Beijing, Shanghai, and Hong Kong, a complete rundown of the movers and shakers in China's People's Communist Party, and critical insights into environmental, health, and welfare issues facing China today.
