"Once a sleeping giant, China today is the world's fastest growing economy - the leading manufacturer of cell phones, laptop computers, and digital cameras - a dramatic turn-around that alarms many Westerners. But In China: Fragile Superpower, Susan L. Shirk opens up the black box of Chinese politics and finds that the real danger lies not in China's astonishing growth, but in the deep insecurity of its leaders. China's rulers face a troubling paradox: the more developed and prosperous the country becomes, the more insecure and threatened they feel. Unless we understand China's brittle internal politics and the insecurities of its leaders, we face the very real possibility of unavoidable conflict with rising China. This book provides that understanding."--BOOK JACKET.
