"The photographs in the is book were taken over a three-year period during which Nadav Kander followed the course of the Yangtze River upstream, from the coastal estuary to its source in the mountains of the Himalayas. His aim was to chart the consequences of the extraordinary pace of Chinese economic development upon the world's third largest river. In so doing he also illuminates the effects of this development on the lives and traditions of the people who live in the 186 cities and myriad towns and rural villages that line the banks of the Yangtze"--Intro.
