About this product
- DescriptionAfter thirty years of ecomic reform, China has reached a crossroads in its development process, and faces many challenges in the use of natural resources, the living environment, and the ecomic, social and political systems. The sustainability of China's reform and development is even more salient in the face of the global financial crisis and ecomic recession. Taking the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing as an iconic turning-point, the book explores key themes such as ecomic reform and sustainability, invation and sustainability, globalisation and social development, and analyses the prospects for sustainable reform and development in Post-Olympic China. The book includes topics such as Chinese banking reforms; the issue of regional inequalities; energy and environmental challenges; industry development and corporate social responsibility, and democracy and media bloggers. With analysis written by experts from a wide range of disciplines, the book will appeal to a wide range of readers interested in China's environment and sustainable development, ecomic and political reform, and international relations.
