Evansville Courier & Press

The China Price has come to Evansville, Illinois. The book gets a write-up in a longer piece about books about China by Pam Locker, manager of Oaklyn Branch Library. She makes the point that "most of us have a very dated and incomplete picture of contemporary China" but that my book and others pull back the curtain on what's really happening in China. Read her article here.

I have been devouring new books about China, and I conside yours to be the most revealing and informative re how China is managing to become the world's manufacturer. Just one thing -- Evansville is in Indiana -- not Illinois. (I am flattered to find my review on your blog!)

Yikes! What a terrible mistake! Thanks for pointing that out, and I apologize! Evansville, Indiana it is.
