Restraints and possibilities : the decision-making process and political participation in Dengist China - the Three Gorges Dam case study

Lee, Yuen-ching Bellette

Description

In his famous poem An early departure from the White Emperor City, Tang poet Li Bai praised the tranquil and beautiful nature of the Three Gorges along the Yangtze River as comprising "rosy clouds", "cries of apes" and "range upon range of mountains". Writing a poem on the same place, Mao Zedong aspired to conquer the nature with human power and build up a dam to create a "calm lake" at the Three Gorges to "amaze the world".
