About this item

China is undergoing the biggest and fastest societal and economic change in human history. Driving this dizzying transformation is the idea of the "Chinese Dream," the promise that in the new China, anyone can make it.

Journalist and writer Nick Holdstock has traveled the length of the expansive country that is China to find out the reality behind this rhetoric—from the factory-owner, to the noodle seller, from the karaoke maids to the hoteliers, and from the deserted, aging countryside to the young and overcrowded cities.

Chasing the Chinese Dream follows a cast of extraordinary characters: the people getting rich; running factories and buying luxury cars and Louis Vuitton bags. But it also provides insight into those left behind, trapped by a system defined by long hours and no prospects.

A spell-binding and magical narrative, Chasing the Chinese Dream tells the story of modern China through the Chinese people living it.
