But the TLS reviewer didn't like it over much, perhaps it beat his pending magnum opus on China. Or, more likely, no one wants to cause offence to China's communist leaders, especially an academic hoping for the goodwill of this vicious political caste! It is a bit like the Saudis, have oil and all is forgiven, including the funding of global terror by its benighted citizens!
