When A Billion Chinese Jump:
Jonathan Watts, Asia Environment Correspondent for The Guardian, takes us on a 100,000km journey through a country struggling to manage economic growth and declining ecosystems. At heart, Watts' new book is not a call for panic, but a demonstration that - even with the crisis so severe, and the political scope so limited - the actions of individuals can make a difference.
