Editorial Reviews

Review

"The book is clear, engagingly written, and quite original, combining an overview of Western scholarship, some Chinese scholarship, and a critique of twentieth-century Chinese culture to argue the prospects of China's completed modernization and the challenges it poses for the state and the military." ----Pamela Kyle Crossley, Robert 1932 and Barbara Black Professor of History, Dartmouth College

"Rising China and its Postmodern Fate is a highly-informed and insightful set of reflections on the question: what are we to make of the much-discussed 'rise' of China? Horner combines a wide-ranging specialist knowledge and an ability to look at the question from many angles, in succession. This is a unique and marvelous piece of deep reflection on some of the most important issues of history of our time." ----Arthur Waldron, Lauder Professor of International Relations, University of Pennsylvania

Format: Library Binding
The behavior of normal Chinese citizens under the Maoist rule seems often hard to explain and even harder to comprehend. Why Chinese remained largely loyal under the duress of the Great Cultural Revolution, or under the Great Leap Forward, or after the Tiananmen crackdown? Horner reveals deep undercurrents of the Chinese culture that can help to understand the great resilience of Chinese society. A wonderful book.

Format: Library Binding Verified Purchase
This book brings together a wide ranging series of topics, China's reappraisal of its history, foreign policy, literature, architecture, economic growth and more but all coming back to the same question of China's search for identity and in the background always with the looming question of modernity and Chineseness. Each chapter could could be a book.

Format: Library Binding
Horner's book ranges across topics as different as grand strategy, science fiction, and city planning and yet it manages to tie them all together in an easy, almost conversational tone. Very thought provocing.
