"China’s Environmental Challenges." Judith Shapiro. Polity. April 2013. --- China’s huge environmental challenges are significant for us all. They affect not only the health and well–being of China but the very future of the planet. In this book, noted China specialist and environmentalist Judith Shapiro investigates China’s struggle to achieve sustainable development against a backdrop of acute rural poverty and soaring middle class consumption. Stephen Minas recommends this stimulating read to students of all levels, which benefits from Shapiro’s personal insights and the historical and cultural context in which she places current issues.
