Country Driving: Three Journeys Across a Changing China.

by Hessler, Peter

Condition: See description

Melbourne: Text Publishing, 2010. Paperback octavo, very good condition, pages faintly toned, crease fore-edge rear cover, minor edgewear corners. 438 pp. The author traveled through China over the past decade - from the fortified towns along the Great Wall in the north, to once-remote villages now undergoing massive change, and finally to the entrepreneurial cities of the south-east, where factory start-ups are a dime a dozen. China is modernising quickly, and the author is caught up in that modernisation. Told with eloquence and wit, showing a China rarely seen by outsiders.
