"A thoroughly competent study ... the glossary of Chinese terms is especially useful..." Asian Studies Review "In Baileya s account of chinaa s major political milestones in the twentieth century, the selection of facts and his generalisations are sound and convincing. The booka s greatest strength lies in the strategy of presentation [and is] a refreshing departure from the omniscient viewpoint and mononarrative of many texts. The author has accomplished a great deal here... this book deserves very serious consideration for undergraduate and graduate courses." Craig Dietrich, University of Southern Maine, Portland, USA
