The second instalment of David Wingrove's epic masterpiece Chung Kuo.
It is 2087. Japan lies under a radioactive cloud, its denizens wiped out. America has been subjugated, its inhabitants scattered. The Old World is dead, buried beneath the foundations of the New - Chung Juo, a mile-high, globe-spanning megacity. Billions have perished and history has been rewritten with their blood.
