This is from Cornell University's series of "Studies in Money". It is a good overview of China and how she fits into the current international monetary system. The editor asks if China will be a rule 'taker', 'maker', or 'breaker' in the future as a general starting point for most of the essays included therein. The book is not overly technical and describes the politics underlying many of the decisions made by authorities in China related to exchange rates, the IMF, international relationships, and so on. Each chapter has a different author and approaches the "China problem" from a different angle.
