Age of Ambition - Evan Osnos

In this book, New Yorker staff writer and former Beijing correspondent Evan Osnos embeds stories of contemporary Chinese citizens alongside a thoughtful excavation of historical and cultural trends to create a modern portrait of the country. China is often portrayed in broad strokes, but Osnos' meticulous reporting charts the country’s staggering economic development, spiritual soul-searching, and government authoritarianism while maintaining a sense of nuance that upends simple conclusions. Osnos’ clear-eyed analysis, humane narratives, and eye for the absurd offer a window that both newcomers and old China hands will find illuminating.
