The China Boom Project is a multimedia research, public education, and oral history project designed to explore the question “Why did China boom?“ by recording the collective wisdom of our moment.
Beginning in 2008, China Boom Project researchers taped interviews with individuals who possess unique insights into China’s Boom. They come from all walks of life. Many are leading participants in or observers of China’s economic miracle who can share insight on those aspects of China’s growth they know best. The result is a mosaic explanation, painted in the words of those who have watched it most carefully.
This interactive website presents a guided tour of China’s three decades of “reform and opening“ based on selections from the interview archive. In addition, the project is digitally archived. The full-length videotaped interviews will be available through a consortium of research libraries around the world. Geared toward an audience of specialists and general public alike, China Boom will be a resource for researchers in decades to come.
