This is an auction for CHINA SHAKES THE WORLD: THE RISE OF A HUNGRY NATION, by James Kynge.

Amazon.com reviews:

"CHINA SHAKES THE WORLD is a thoroughly engrossing look at China's economy and how it affects the rest of the world. Kynge's style is very fluid and easy to read and after only a few pages you are unable to stop reading. Due to living there for many years Kynge is able to infuse the various stories with personal insight and you get a good feel for many of the issues explored. Some parts of this book were pretty shocking and makes you realise just how exploited Chinese workers are. You are also left realising how interdependent the world is now and any prosperity or decline in China will have a massive impact worldwide. This book didn't have a happy ending (if you know what I mean), some political books I've read explore the issues, but finish saying how things may be turned around, but this book tended not to do that. Never-the-less, the journey to get to the end was so interesting sand insightful, I'll forgive the slightly sombre finish. Well worth a read for a deeper understanding of the Chinese economy."

"This book really is an eye-opener to everybody who has an interest in what's going on in the world and that really is important. In-depth analysis from a knowledgeable insider. Should be promoted to youngsters above 16, as they will be confronted at full with the consequences of this development."
