About this book


This book provides a detailed insight into China's endeavours to acquire the advanced technical competencies which lie at the heart of modern telecommunications. Distinctively detailed first hand material is presented in two contrasting case studies in the field of public digital switching systems. The book explores the deep problems that beset the former socialist system, how these are changing in the face of China's economic transition and its distinctive technological policy of 'walking on two legs'. An invaluable guide to China, The Chinese Road to High Technology also offers important insights into the issues facing other developing countries.
