Editorial Reviews

Review

A major step forward in the accurate understanding of China in the attempt to understand its internal dynamic. . . . This book will inform both the average reader and the academic about the rise of China, and above all, its identity reconstruction. (Journal of Chinese Political Science)

Stimulating and elegant. This unique book purposefully blends insightful historical analyses and strong present-day commentaries, placing core elements of the phenomenon of contemporary China into very meaningful contexts. This welcome and long-overdue approach will assist a broad readership that seeks to understand both where China has been and where it is going. (Robert A. Kapp, former president, US-China Business Council)

China and the United States are bound to have issues and confrontation. We will also have synergies, collaboration, and cooperation. In China's Rise, Brantly Womack has compiled the most useful set of perspectives in the last decade on how to think about China. The contributors to this book are not only among the best observers and analysts of China's actions but also some of the best writers in the field. They have given us a guide to understanding that is not only immensely interesting to a broad group of readers trying to understand modern China but also eminently useful to those who deal in the U.S.-China relationship in any serious way. (Admiral Joseph W. Prueher, former ambassador to China and commander-in-chief, U.S. Pacific Command)

A good book on China purchased for a course the contents are explained very well. Establishes a trend from a historical POV and speculates the thought process, during other incidents within China. Often issues of separatist and radical mindsets are left to the more exposed countries while China worked within itself and often from the public eye to isolate and assimilate those behaviors into a one thought process for the mother land.
