Book Description

24 July 1986 The Cambridge History of China (Book 13)
This is the second of two volumes of this authoritative history which review the Republican period. The titanic drama of the Chinese Revolution is one of the major world events of modern times. The fifteen authors of this volume are pioneers in its exploration and analysis, and their text is designed to meet the needs of non-specialist readers. After a preliminary overview stressing economic and social history, the History presents a narrative of events in China's foreign relations to 1931, and in the political history of the Nationalist government and its Communist opponents from 1927 to 1937. Subsequent chapters analyse key governmental, educational and literary - offering critical appraisal of the major achievements and problems in each of these areas. Finally, the volume examines China's war of resistance, the civil war to 1949, and the portentous development of the thought of Mao Tse-tung before coming to power.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXcellent book and excellent service by vendor and Amazon!!!! 29 Aug 2013
By douglas w. lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Even a used copy is expensive, but so worth it! As a China specialist specializing in Republican/Nationalist China, I have
known about the Cambridge series. Even after all of these years and the advances in research, this volume is still one of the best for a comprehensive overview of a complex subject. Expensive yes, but well worth it. The book came faster than expected and in good condition. Very happy with the service from the vendor and Amazon...reliable, speedy, and
efficient! One can not ask for anything more. D.Lee

3.0 out of 5 stars Serious history 21 Dec 2007
By usabear - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
As with other volumes in this series, the writing is dry and monotonous. The editors stick with Wade-Giles for Chinese translation, rather than going with Pinyin - an extraordinary gaff. Nevertheless, the volume is an important additon to the serious student of Chinese history's library.
