Synopsis: CHINA, PORTRAIT OF A COUNTRY (25 YEARS OF TASCHEN)

This is a sweeping portrait of China, its people, and its history since 1949. It is presented as seen by China's most prominent photographers and edited by Pulitzer-winning photojournalist Liu Heung Shing. This book brings together a vast selection of images by Chinese photographers since 1949, giving readers a visual journey across the great People's Republic; edited by esteemed photojournalist Liu Heung Shing, longtime "Associated Press" correspondent and "Time" magazine contributor. In post-Mao China, late Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping urged his one billion countrymen to "seek truth from facts." Taking its cue from Deng's overture, China today is the leading economic story of the 21st century. The process by which China navigated the path from periphery to a central position in world affairs dominates the debate about Asia and China's relationship to the western world. Pulitzer-winning photojournalist Liu Heung Shing charts the visual history of sixty years of the People's Republic (1949 to 2008), and along the way aims to illustrate its humanistic course. Via work by 88 Chinese photographers, this collection of images shows how the Chinese people have blossomed in spite of enduring previous decades of extraordinary hardship. When China opened the curtain at the summer Olympics in 2008 and the world's focus fell upon Beijing, these photographs served to map out the remarkable road the Chinese had travelled to rejoin the rest of the world. To help place the images in context, also included is a chronology listing all the major political events in China.
