5.0 out of 5 stars A gem
Why read a book about China published in the 1920s to try to understand today's China? The answer is simple: Bertrand Russell.
In The Problem of China, Russell, one of the great minds of the 20th century, offers a study of China and its relationships with the world and particularly Japan at the beginning of the last century. China no doubt has changed since, but...

3.0 out of 5 stars Russell's intellectualism
Reasonably reflects B Russell's highly respected intellectualism but not exactly his master piece. But it was free so I can't moan

This review is from: The Problem of China (Paperback)
Why read a book about China published in the 1920s to try to understand today's China? The answer is simple: Bertrand Russell.
In The Problem of China, Russell, one of the great minds of the 20th century, offers a study of China and its relationships with the world and particularly Japan at the beginning of the last century. China no doubt has changed since, but Russell's understanding of this country and its people was such that he was able to extract its key cultural, demographic and economic features and make incredibly accurate predictions on its future place in the world.
Russell surely understood China well, probably better than any modern living author who wrote on the subject, giving the reader a compelling argument for grabbing a copy of this book and start learning about this complex nation on the right foot.

This review is from: The Problem of China (Paperback)
It's one of the best books to understand Chinese culture from an outsider's view --- an really brilliant outsider indeed. As a Chinese, I have to say Russell really understood and explained Chinese culture very well, its treasure and its problems. It's good to read such a book by a great mind to search your nation. And Amazon's shipping is efficient and perfect, thanks!

This was free of charge. I used to borrow books from a local library, but have recently begun to get something to read from Amazon when I have time. I enjoy reading e-books including this one. Thank you.
