Item description for China Fever: Fascination, Fear, and the World's Next Superpower by Frank S. Fang...

Many Western Observers believe that China's economic liberalization will inevitably lead to its democratization. Economist Frank S. Fang, director of Chicago's Institutional Economics Center, thinks otherwise. In a must-read for anyone interested in what's to come in the "American-Chinese Century," Fang details why the U.S. must deal with China on China's own terms or risk embroiling itself in a political and strategic quagmire. Presenting a massive amount of up-to-date business data in an easy-to-follow manner, Fang, who has studied and worked as a consultant in both China and the U.S., offers an insider's look at the fundamental "on the ground" issues faced by China and the West, highlighting the cultural basis for China's ideological conflicts with America and using case studies in business, economics, and politics to explain China's rapid growth and international influence. Fang demonstrates why China will never adopt Western-style democracy and why the Chinese challenge to America is on a much more fundamental "state model" level.

Frank S. Fang, an economist, is the director of the Institutional Economics Center (, an independent research organization based in Chicago.

Reviews - What do customers think about China Fever: Fascination, Fear, and the World's Next Superpower?

Biased  Jun 6, 2008
It is true that China has dramatically developed in the past two decades, but this book fails to address the problems with the "unhealthy" rise of China, such as corrupted political system and all other issues resulted from that, which will cause long-term damage to the country's development and eventually come back to haunt China. The author is simply speaking favor for China and not examining the issues objectively.
Impressive  Nov 7, 2007
CHINA FEVER is one of the best books in exploring China's recent developments, a puzzle full of opportunities and challenges, not only to the outside world, but also to the Chinese themselves.

This book uncovers the mystery behind China's economic rise, reveals how "Face Culture" shapes China's ambitions. This book also explains why China won't adopt Western democracy, thus contradicting western prediction that China will adopt western political system with the rise of a middle class as a result of its economic miracle.

CHINA FEVER is a must read for all those who are interested in China. It benefits scholars with its sophisticated analyses of China's diverse economic system and one-party political structure. This book also should interest the rank and file with some fascinating tales of pop culture.
Fantastically resourceful  Nov 5, 2007
"China Fever": the best of its kind. There are quite a few China books for general readers in recent years, including China Shakes the World, China The Balance Sheet, China Inc, One Billion Customers, The Chinese Century, China's Century, etc. But I alway shave a feeling that something is still missing. This special "something" makes "China Fever" stands out: it is culture, the true understanding of Chinese culture. This book uses a lot of stories to explain the "Chinese cult of face" and the Chinese "interdependent psychology" (different from America's" independent psychology"), and how they shape Chinese behavior in their business, economy, and politics. In addition, the book has a theory to put everything happening in China under a framework, a framework that can really help readers make sense out of all those confusing and conflicting events in that country. The conclusion of this book, however, might be controversial. Is China's political system stable enough to be a "state model" that can rival the Western model? Can China build its own version of democracy? And can China handle itself well when the international situation is not as conductive as in present days? I am just not so sure.
