A worthy addition to the China rising genre. Fishman proves himself an able, vigorous reporter. There are inevitably passages of the book that will remind one of any of a slew of recent books about China’s takeoff, particularly the sections that deal with Shanghai. He’s got interesting things to say about the looming US-China economic competition, particularly in the tech area. The 300-odd pages here are, moreover, a breeze to read.
