In this landmark work of investigative reporting, former Financial Times correspondent Alexandra Harney uncovers a story of immense significance to us all: how China's factory economy gains a competitive edge by selling out its workers, environment, and future.

This eye-opening expose offers, for the first time, an intimate look at the defining business story of our time.
