The Washington Journal of Modern China is an annual scholarly publication of the U.S.-China Policy Foundation. The emphasis of the Washington Journal of Modern China is contemporary Chinese affairs, including scholarly articles on politics, economics, military, and environment. The Journal also features less formal material such as the transcripts from discussions and roundtable events, travel observations, and, as before, book reviews.

*CORRECTION: Page 68, 2nd paragraph, last line – “problematic loans, which are now by one estimate over $3 trillion U.S., or well over 200 percent of Chinese GDP.” Problematic loans make up 20 percent of Chinese GDP, not 200 percent.
