With hundreds of vivid color photographs, many of them sweeping across two full pages (20 x 12 inches), this book is an arresting visual tour of modern China, tracing the route of Mao's Long March to underscore how vastly the country has changed in 75 years. Portrayed as a prosperous amalgam of Western styles and Chinese tradition, heavy industry and farmer's markets, spotless urban villas and sunlit Tibetan valleys—and with smiling faces and children everywhere—China puts her best foot forward here.
