Book Description

30 Sep 1983 The Cambridge History of China (Book 12)
This is the first of two volumes of this authoritative Cambridge history which review the Republican period, between the demise of imperial China and the establishment of the People's Republic. These years from 1912 to 1949 were marked by civil war, revolution and invasion; but also by change and growth in the economic, social, intellectual and cultural spheres. The chapters examine economic trends in the period and the rise of the new middle class. Intellectual trends are surveyed to show the changes in traditional Chinese values and the foreign influences which played a major role in Republican China. Although it is written by specialists, the goals and approach of this Cambridge history are to explain and discuss republican China for an audience which will include scholars, students and general readers who do not have special knowledge of Chinese history. It will be useful both as narrative history and as a reference source on the history and politics of China.

3.0 out of 5 stars Serious history 21 Dec 2007
By usabear - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This volume is an important addition to any library for those who are serious students of Chinese History. The writing, as with all volumes in this series, is extremely dry and monotonous. Thus, unless one is heavily invested in such histories, it would not provide interesting reading. The most serious gaff, however, is the editors continued use of Wade-Giles for Chinese language and name translation. There is no excuse for this. Anyone who is serious enough to read these volumes would have to have made the transition to Pinyin some time ago. That the editors refuse to adapt might be an indication of their own biases. If the writing were more entertaining (- one star) and if the editors had used Pinyin (- one star), the book could have reached a five-star rating.
