Editorial Reviews


'As an updating of the author's well-received 2006 study, this book continues to carry weight. It is easily one of the most comprehensive, incisive, and readily intelligible introductions to the numerous perplexities of economic, social, and governmental changes in post-Mao China...Given his willingness to confront central issues in China's modernization head on, Guthrie's work remains a superior guidebook to that historic process. Essential.'Choice, April 2009

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I got this as a textbook for one of my classes. It is a very thorough explanation of the forces behind modernization in China. As you read through the book though, you realize that you are being presented with a lot of information to support the author's opinions. The reading is dry enough to suck up a bath tub of water. Because of the blandness and author's opinions I stopped doing the full class assigned readings half way through the book.
