'Fully updated, Will China Fail? looks at the profound and mounting contradictions, tensions, and dysfunctions within Chinese economy and society and why the country's problems are getting worse. It also examines the impact of the global financial crisis on China's economy and assesses the Chinese Communist Party's response to the crisis. The book shows why political and economic reform needed to limit the role of the Chinese Communist Party is likely to be inadequate. Despite impressive growth figures, the regime is struggling to stay one step ahead of disaster while consequences of weaknesses - including the impact on Chinese foreign policy - have not yet fully emerged.
Far from China being a 'successful dictatorship', Will China Fail? reaffirms the connection between limited government bound by the rule of law and sustainable and successful transition.'
