Your Call 080207 China Road

What kind of a superpower will China be? On the next Your Call we talk with former NPR China correspondent Rob Gifford about his new book, China Road. Gifford traveled the length of National Route 312, a 3,000 mile road from Shanghai to Kazakhstan. Along its length Gifford saw China's factory-riddled present and poverty stricken past, but what does it say about the future? Is Communist control over a capitalist super state bound to collapse? Or is China charting a path to development that others can follow? It's Your Call with Sandip Roy and you.
