Abstract The year began ominously for China;the nation was isolated by a major public health crisis caused by the spread of SARS from Guangdong to Beijing, Taiwan, Singapore, and Toronto, to name only the most heavily impacted regions. As the crisis developed, it became perhaps inevitably involved with the ongoing transition to new political leadership. But by the end of the year, China was flexing its economic and technical muscle, as it basked in international attention from its first successful space flight.
