Editorial Reviews

Review

"Richard Baum's China Watcher offers us a distinctive view into China and the field of China watching . . . Many in the profession will find his journey familiar, yet even professionals will find the book engaging because he so openly and candidly shines a light on what it has meant to be a China hand over the past 40 years." --Scott Kennedy, Pacific Affairs, June 2011

From the Inside Flap

This audacious and illuminating memoir reflects on 40 years of learning about the People's Republic of China through China watching--the process by which outsiders gather and decipher official and unofficial information to figure out what's really going on behind China's veil of political secrecy and propaganda.--Richard Baum is professor of political science at UCLA. His many books include Burying Mao: Chinese Politics in the Age of Deng Xiaoping. He is the presenter of a Great Courses video lecture series published by the Teaching Company.
