Overview

Since 1978, China’s economy has gone from poverty-level to the second highest GDP in the world. How has China freed itself from the shadow of the Cultural Revolution, turning the page to a bright new future? Deng Xiaoping, who led the second generation of Chinese leaders and was the architect of what would become the China we know, was integral in China’s rise. His theories inspired his people and his influence is seen everywhere in China today. This book collects his thoughts on a wide range of topics, including economics, politics, education, and science. On Reform provides insight for scholars, researchers, and other interested readers into Deng Xiaoping’s thinking and, ultimately, the thinking of modern China.
