An immense land, China is approximately the same size as the United States. Yet it is home to more than four times as many people as live within U.S. borders-and the population is concentrated in the eastern half of the country because much of the west consists of rugged mountains and inhospitable desert.

The Geography of China presents a wealth of information on such topics as topography, climate, natural resources, regions, cities, and environmental issues. It will be a valuable resource for students of this emerging nation.
