China Between by Jennifer Higgie China Between, Hardback (January 2010)

When the Peoples' Republic set up its Special Economic Zones in the 1980s communist China entered into global trade and international capital. This photographic exploration shows how a casual glance, moment of doubt or a quick trip to the shopping mall can tell us as much about modern China as any image of a dam, a protest or a teeming workforce.
