"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
