Written by a former BBC China correspondent, this is a highly readable and fascinating look at the rapid changes China is undergoing. It tells what it is like for the people on the street to live through the complete transformation of their society.

China is a nation in motion, where streets are rebuilt in a week, car ownership is soaring, education goes private and rural workers migrate to the cities in search of a better life. But while many have benefited others are struggling to keep up. This work speaks with the voices of everyday people as they learn to adapt to these transformations.
