"Party games" China is on the march. As Beijing prepares for the 2008 Summer Olympic Games, it is envisioning a new political dawn for a growing nation, and is ready to invite the world to see its progress.
"Getting rich" In 25 years, China's economy has grown faster than that of any nation in history. How? By scrapping its devotion to collectivism and embracing private enterprise with the zeal of 19th-century robber barons. But is China's success riding on the backs of the poor?
"Food is heaven" From the steamy kitchens of Canton to the arid moonscape of the north, food is the very heart and soul of China. But increasing development and dwindling water supplies are threatening the nation's ability to feed itself.
"City of dreams" In the streets and neighborhoods of Shanghai, a new dream of China is being turned into reality. A generation of Chinese now lives in a style that would not look out of place in New York, Berlin or Toronto. But for its poorer residents, Shanghai can be a city of despair.
