China and the planet are at a pivotal moment; transformation to a more sustainable development model is still possible.
But - as Shapiro persuasively argues - doing so will require humility, creativity, and a rejection of business as usual. The window of opportunity will not be open much longer. The Second Edition has been thoroughly updated with the latest figures and trends, and it has been expanded in significant ways. The chapter on civil society has been reorganized and updated so as to highlight the many inventive and courageous strategies that Chinese environmental non-governmental organizations are using to shape public policy and behavior.
Amid her sober accounting of today's crisis, she gives us reason to hope that a country that can "make rivers flow uphill," as a Mao-era poem put it, may play a vital role in tackling climate change. She provides an insightful and accessible account of the drivers of pollution in China, its consequences for all of us, and the needed national and international reforms to address these pressing problems.
