In Depth and Engaging! 23 April 2013
By William Barnes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Spence knocked it out the park with this textbook on Modern China. From providing an understanding of the social forces driving contemporary politics to establishing linkages between China and its immediate and not-so-immediate geopolitical neighbors, Spence paints a robust picture of China. The Search for Modern China serves as an excellent introduction for anyone interesting in fostering a knowledge of one of the world's oldest nations.
