Editorial Reviews

"In the large pantheon of rising China books this study stands out. Its principal strengths derive from the cast of contributors and the breadth of coverage in their chapters. The authors do not accept China's "rise" as either inevitable or necessarily positive. They enumerate multiple domestic challenges that constrict China's power potential; they examine the consequences of competition from China for other developing nations; and they identify potential areas of global competition with the United States. This is a thought-provoking, well reasoned, and informative study - of use to scholars, students, journalists, and policy makers alike." - David Shambaugh, George Washington University & The Brookings Institution"Global Giant provides an unusually comprehensive and sophisticated treatment of the internal challenges China faces as a consequence of its high economic growth, and of the questions it poses for developing countries and the current geopolitical constellation. Especially valuable is the book's analysis of China's economic policies as an alternative to the Washington Consensus. Specialists and non-specialists alike should read this important and timely book." - José Antonio Ocampo, Professor, Columbia University, former UN Under-Secretary-General for Economic and Social Affairs and former Finance Minister of Colombia
