156 Introduction. There is no better source for an objective overview of controversies surrounding Three Gorges that have been growing since the late 1970s' Chinese market-oriented "opening" to the outside world. Much more work needs to be done, however, to really understand what Three Gorges means in the larger context of China's modern transformation. The Three Gorges dream that has been around for seventy-odd years raises important questions that have yet to be framed, much less seriously analyzed. These include the nature of changing relations between state and society, the interplay of technology, society, and culture, and the direction of institu- tional change in China. Consideration of technical feasibility whets the appetite for more extensive investigations that explore the social, cultural, and political implications of the project. Chinese and English references in the Introduction and a bibliography of English publications are useful and fairly complete. Cook College, Rutgers University New Brunswick, NJ 08903-0213, U.S.A.
