But In China: Fragile Superpower, Susan L. Shirk opens up the black box of Chinese politics and finds that the real danger lies not in China's astonishing growth, but in the deep insecurity of its leaders.

Unless we understand China's brittle internal politics and the insecurities of its leaders, we face the very real possibility of unavoidable conflict with rising China. This book provides that understanding"--BOOK JACKET."
