This book is based on an in-depth conversation between Howard Burton and Hwei-Chih and Julia Hsiu Chair in Chinese Studies and Professor of History at UC San Diego. This wide-ranging conversation covers the emerging American-style consumer culture of China which is revolutionizing the lives of hundreds of millions of Chinese, how it has transformed its economy and lifestyle and has the potential to reshape the world, and the different environmental issues that China is grappling with.

This carefully-edited book includes an introduction, Full Circle, and questions for discussion at the end of each chapter:

I. Filling in the World - Young Karl heads abroad

II. History and Demography - A brief examination of what we mean by “modern China: and the importance, and possible origin, of China’s large population

III. Contemporary China - Change at breakneck speed

IV. Environmental Issues - And associated political aspects

V. Societal Values - And how they are changing

VI. Catastrophic Scenarios - And how they might be addressed

VII. Ever Onwards - Towards a deeper understanding
