"Technological Superpower China" explores how China is becoming a technological superpower within the global economy by integrating its national R&D programs with the innovation systems of national and international corporations. Jon Sigurdson provides a thorough and comprehensive analysis of China's knowledge foundation in technology and R&D following its dynamic march forward in the early 1980s. The author describes how China's narrow window of opportunity - before becoming an ageing nation - has prompted the country to hurriedly mobilize resources in the hope of becoming a technological superpower within the next few decades. He examines how advances in higher education, human resources development, technology access through FDI, technology transfer, ICT, space and defence technology and corporate technology are being exploited in the race to emerge as an advanced knowledge economy nation. Exploring the changes in China that are transforming the technological landscape of the country, this book will be a fascinating read for academics, students and researchers interested in China's development, the foundations of its economic growth and its role in regional and political affairs.
