'In post-Mao China, Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping (1904-97) urged his one billion countrymen to "seek truth from facts" and accept the merit (and apparent contradictions) of his "reform policy". As the world entered the 21st century, taking its cue from Deng's overture, China had become the leading economic story of the day. The process by which China navigated its course towards a central position in world affairs is as astonishing as it is momentous. With China, Portrait of a Country, Pulitzer-winning photojournalist Liu Heung Shing presents a visual history of the People's Republic of China. Drawn directly from the archives of 88 of the nation's photographers, he unveils the events and experiences that have unfolded through the sixty tumultuous years of the People's Republic of China, from its founding in 1949 to the economic powerhouse of today.
Also included in this book are a chronology listing all the major political events, a map of China, and biographies of all contributing photographers.' (Front flap of the book)
