China by Carole Goddard


China by Carole Goddard

This fantastic series provides the most up-to-date information possible using maps, diagrams, charts and specially commissioned photos to support up-to-the minute text. Meticulously researched, each book offers a fascinating insight into the life of the country, providing an ideal support for GCSE Geography studies as well as providing general information about the countries of the world. China is changing rapidly. It is the third-largest country in the world, with a population of 1.3 billion that is still rising! The country's economy is growing at 8 per cent each year - faster than any other less economically developed country. Old traditions are giving way to new values as China becomes part of the modern world. Over the last 20 years, the country has moved from an economy strictly controlled by the government to a market economy. This book examines China today and looks at how the country is addressing the challenge of providing enough food for its people, coping with rapid urbanisation and sustaining economic growth.
