Getting Rich
In a brief 25 years, China has achieved the most rapid economic advance of any nation in history. How? By scrapping its devotion to collectivism and embracing private enterprise with the zeal of the 19th Century robber barons. But is China's success riding on the backs of the poor?

City of Dreams
In the streets and neighborhoods of Shanghai, a new dream of China is being turned into reality. A generation of Chinese now live in a style that would not look out of place in New York, Berlin or Toronto. But for its poorer residents, Shanghai can be a city of despair.
