Product description

One of The Economist's Best Books of the YearFrom the bestselling author of Oracle Bones and River Town comes the final book in his award-winning trilogy on the human side of the economic revolution in China.Peter Hessler, whom the Wall Street Journal calls "one of the Western world's most thoughtful writers on modern China," deftly illuminates the vast, shifting landscape of a traditionally rural nation that, having once built walls against foreigners, is now building roads and factory towns that look to the outside world.

As a Chinese who was born and raised in China, I still find this book fascinating.

Review quote

Delightful. . . . Epic. . . . The reporting in "Country Driving" is impressive in its scope. . . . Hessler delivers eloquent disquisitions on everything from how to buy a used car in China to the history of the Mongol conquest. --Dwight Garner, "The New York Times""
