By Jordean on June 11, 2011
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I am no China scholar. However, this is one odd book. The author traveled to China in 1971, on the heels of the Cultural Revolution, and appears to have been totally oblivious to the effects still present in society. The praise for the progress the country was making at that point seems especially silly today. Everything is clean, tidy, orderly, well-organized. Health care and education are excellent, the people are all happy, honest and striving to perfect communism.

Certainly this was the view presented to the author, but to relate it unquestioningly to Western readers seems naive at best. Unless his visit was 100% orchestrated, he should have seen some traces of the chaos China had just been through. Not to say that there is some ulterior motive behind the book.

But, it is an interesting product of the times. Implicitly critical of the US role in SE Asia. Optimistic about the rise of China.

Worth a read if you can get a copy for a few cents. Or get it in the library if possible.
