China embodies so many contemporary geographical dilemmas – development vs sustainability, population growth vs economic growth, and so on – and has developed unprecedented ways of creating and utilising links with other countries. The Rise and Rise of China investigates the factors which affect and effect the rapid changes in contemporary China, offering students opportunities to investigate traditional geographical principles in the context of place-specific knowledge. Based on these investigations, and critical consideration of sources, students will be able to form grounded opinions and re-evaluate their views of contrasting cultures in the context of their own lives and experiences. A wealth of images enables you and your students to establish a sense of place: vital in view of China’s cultural and geographical distance from the UK.
