Sizing guide

The accumulated achievements of China since its revolution of 1949 are so great that they have now not only changed the world but must lead every socialist and progressive person to think about their relation to them. This is a situation only comparable to the way Russia's 1917 revolution transformed the world.

China, after its revolution, has achieved the greatest improvement in life of by far the largest proportion of humanity of any country in human history. China's Great Road explains how China achieved this enormous step forward for humanity. The unequivocal answer the book gives is that socialism achieved this huge advance. It analyses this at numerous different levels.

If the international left does not raise itself to understanding China's successful socialist development then it is lagging in understanding one of the most enormous facts in human history. China's Great Road both analyses China's reality and shows how socialists in other countries can and should learn from China.

He was appointed to this position at Chongyang Institute because of his almost 30 years of analysis of China and its relations to the international economy. This started with his 1992 article, originally published in Russian, 'Why the Economic Reform Succeeded in China and Will Fail in Russia and Eastern Europe' - the analysis of which is clear from the title. He is author of over 500 articles, including two bestselling books in Chinese, on China and its relations with the world economy. From 1992-2000 he lived in Moscow, where he attempted to persuade the Russian authorities to follow a China style economic reform instead of Western shock therapy.
