Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

The Sino-Japanese War was a principal source of tension between Washington and Tokyo in 1941, when the U.S. demand that Japan give up the fruits of its victory on the mainland led to the bombing of Pearl Harbor and the transformation of a local conflict into the Asian phase of World War II. Descriptive accounts of the war are available, but analytical studies like this are scarce and welcome. Twelve essays by Western and Chinese writers plumb a wealth of recent Chinese-language sources from both Taiwan and the mainland to elucidate a wide range of subjects that include but go far beyond traditional inquiries into the conflict's military dimensions. Noteworthy essays cover the wartime economy, judicial reform, literature and art, and China's scientific elite. Editor Hsiung's concluding chapter emphasizes the role that historical memories play in contemporary Sino-Japanese relations. A little heavy for the general reader, this valuable book will greatly interest specialists in modern Asian history.

Format: Paperback
China's Bitter Victory is an informative collection of academic essays
that provide a wealth of detail on WWII China that's virtually unknown
outside of specialist circles. It tends to put the nationalist struggle
against the Japanese in general and the KMT government in particular in
a positive light, but readers interested in an antidote should read the
chapter on China in Max Hasting's book Retribution: The Battle for Japan, 1944-45 (Vintage). Definitely worth a
read for those with a deep interest Chinese history,
but is probably too dry for the average WWII buff.

Format: Paperback
The Chinese Nationalist Government led by Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek had done a great job during World War 2. The Chinese soldiers and people fought bravely hard against the invaders, but nobody in the United States know too many about the Second Sino-Japanese War!! I really thank the author who wrote this book to bring the history alive!!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book is very difficult to read, with the prose not very interesting or engaging. Overly academic and not meant for non-historian. Had to skip many paragraphs and chapters.
