From Publishers Weekly
Schell examines the new cultural and economic parameters in China in the wake of the Tiananmen Square massacre and subsequent crackdown, showing a country where entrepreneurial ambition and pop-culture irony have replaced the pieties of the Mao era.

Lucian Pye The New York Times Book Review Lively and elegantly written...Mr. Schell's blend of graceful analysis and unobtrusive firsthand reporting...skillfully captures the improbable, even surreal, air of theater that pervades much of contemporary China. -- Review

As a passionate student of History at Indiana University, I had hoped to find, as indicated above, an academic work studying modern China. Schell's perspective is essential to such an understanding, but Mandate of Heaven does not take a scholarly approach. The book was nonetheless an entertaining read.
