The transformation of China into a global superpower raises some of the most challenging questions of our time.

In this revealing three-part series world-renowned historian, writer and Harvard Professor Niall Ferguson travels through this vast country to find out how a fifth of humanity can live under a Communist government with a capitalist economy when, according to all the laws of history, it should fall apart.

Held together for more than 2000 years, firstly by imperial rule and now by an imperious Communist Party, what does China stand for? Ferguson talks to the people who know including its new billionaires, survivors of Chairman Maos regime, ardent young nationalists and those defending China's rural poor.
