The worldas most populous country is emerging as a world workshop and export machine: a visit to a department store in any country will unearth a plethora of goods manufactured in the Peopleas Republic. China is now the worldas fourth largest exporting nation. In this important book, Kevin Zhang brings together an international team of contributors to analyze this development process. Taking a thematic approach, the book covers: * manufacturing exports and the world workshop * foreign capital and chinaas industrial development * challenges from the WTO and openness.
