Everyone knew that MG Rover needed a big
partner if it were to survive, let alone thrive. No such partner was
forthcoming. Almost as a last throw of the dice, everything was thrown into a
link up with Shanghai Automotive and key figures went out to China. One of them
was Ian Pogson. But it was not to be. Longbridge could not be saved.
There are many reasons why this is so, but this book is not about them. Instead it is a fascinating and unusual account of one man’s life in a country that will soon become the industrial and economic powerhouse in the world but which remains such a mystery to us in Britain. It is a thoughtful, considered and first-hand account of Ian’s determined attempts to learn about China and its people and to understand them. Usually such accounts come from the minds and pens of travel writers. The joy of Ian’s approach is that he brings China alive in a down-to-earth yet compelling account and he enables us to find out a little more about the country that will come to dominate the world.
