Would Beijing put local people and their land ahead of power and profit? Could this remote region actually become a model for sustainable growth? In its struggle to "build a well-off society in an all-round way," Beijing juggles a host of competing priorities: health care for impoverished villagers; habitat for threatened tigers; cars for a growing middle class; clean air for all citizens; energy to power new cities; rubber for the global marketplace.

Where the Dragon Meets the Angry River is an incisive look at the possible fates of China and the planet.

      Not much content, too much of a 'travelogue' - it feels like a story of an American in China, than environmental history, which is what I was looking for. Chapters had titles that gave little hint what they are about, one chapter is the 'rubber is bad' chapter, another is 'hydrodams' etc All of the contexts are American. For me this book was a failure.
