Product Description

Behind the Chinese Miracle reveals the downside to China’s staggering growth, not in statistics, but in the unvarnished stories of China’s migrant workers. For more than two decades these men and women have journeyed from their rural provincial homes to the cities, fueling China’s economic engine. In this remarkable book fourteen of these individuals, from factory workers to neon sign makers to starry-eyed entrepreneurs, speak frankly of their dreams, triumphs and heartbreaking tragedies. Their stories provide an unvarnished, no-holds barred look at the human cost of China’s economic development.
