Book Review: 'Age of Ambition' by Evan Osnos
An engrossing description of modern China. It covers the period of China's ascendancy. As I write, China seems mired in overproduction, malinvestment and a collapsing stock market. This book describes the buildup to what we see today. From a very acute observer who has been on the ground for long enough to figure it out, and who obviously has a gift for communicating directly with a people who are often characterized as inscrutable. An excellent book.
