Reviews

`Rozelle and Johnson present a fascinating account of how rural China's education and health deficit threatens to derail the country's economic ascent. Their outside-the-box approach to understanding economic development offers indispensable new insight into the extreme challenges China faces in the decade ahead.' -- Dinny McMahon, author of <i>China's Great Wall of Debt</i>


`A fascinating account of how rural China's education and health deficit threatens to derail the country's economic ascent.' -- Dinny McMahon, author of <i>China's Great Wall of Debt</i> `Engaging and absorbing...Rozelle and Johnson's work paints a portrait of stark inequality in the world's second-largest economy that will startle not just outsiders, but likely China's elites.' -- Mei Fong, author of <i>One Child</i> `In this important book, Rozelle rings an alarm bell loud and clear.' -- Peter Coy, <i>Bloomberg Businessweek</i> `No one knows rural China better than Scott Rozelle. In this brilliant, original, thought-provoking, and important study, Rozelle and Natalie Johnson not only make China's potential human capital crisis visible, but provide actionable solutions based on rigorous research.' -- Hongbin Li, James Liang Director of the China Program, Stanford University `This book offers a stimulating discussion of the problem of urban-rural inequality in China, which is largely unrecognized in the West, and examines the implications of this inequality for the Chinese nation in the coming decades. It is a valuable guide to an issue rarely discussed outside of China.' -- James J. Heckman, Nobel Prize-winning economist, University of Chicago `This is the most readable and compelling economics book of the year, and probably the most important. From the opening pages, a clear and compelling argument unfolds: China faces a labour quality crisis, as hundreds of millions of young rural workers lack the education and robust health they need to participate in China's emerging high tech economy. Nobody who cares about China can afford to ignore China's Invisible Crisis.' -- Barry Naughton, School of Global Policy and Strategy, University of California, San Diego
