Review: Green Innovation in China by Joanna I. Lewis

There is no greater challenge for humanity in the coming century than slowing the pace of man-made climate change. And there is no country whose actions are more important than China in determining whether or not we will meet this challenge.

Joanna Lewis’s important book on the development of China’s wind power industry is an incisive look at a key part of China’s desire to transform itself into a high-tech green economy while meeting its responsibilities as the world’s largest energy user and second-largest economy.
