Editorial Reviews


Praise for the first edition:

"A balanced and thoughtful account."--Foreign Affairs

"Clear and insightful....A succinct, incisive treatment of recent Chinese political history."--Library Journal

"Excellent...enlightening...[and] challenging."--Perspective

"A book that is worth reading--for both the scholar and the layman....Excellent...enlightening...[and] challenging."--Perspective

Praise for the second edition

"[A] thought provoking explanation of recent events and their place in contemporary Chinese history...better than the first edition."--Lewis Bernstein, Boise State University

"This is a timely and important book that places contemporary China in the context of the tremendous changes that have occurred since 1976."--Robert Antony, Western Kentucky University

"A critical text, [China Without Mao] fills a very important gap. The preface, written months before the ugly events of May-June 1989, is remarkably prescient."--Hugh R. Clark, Ursinus College

"Excellent!"--Edward Zebrowski, Edinboro University of Pennsylvania
