Overview

The Three Gorges damn being constructed on the Yangtze River will displace over a million people and will certainly have a major environmental impact on the reservoir area. Heggelund (The Fridtjof Nansen Institute, Norway) examines issues of resettlement policy and the environment from the perspective of official policy-making and academic discourse in China. He links changes in policy-making to wider changes in Chinese society at large. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
