..".a powerful, engaging and balanced account of the vast span of China's history...The reader can approach this book with confidence and--thanks to its well-chosen reading recommendations--use it as a springboard for deeper engagement with China, its culture and its people." --Ellis Tinios, Honorary Lecturer in East Asian History, University of Leeds
"A Brief History of China is a pacy romp through China's long and layered history that successfully walks the tightrope of the scholarly and the entertaining. In brisk, engaging prose, Clements covers this book's vast territory with authority." --Pallavi Aiyar, Author of Smoke and Mirrors: An Experience of China
"A go-to guide for anyone seeking to get up to speed on China quickly. With a focus on memorable characters and stories, A Brief History of China is ideal for tourists, students and businesspeople looking to understand this emerging superpower." --Julie Makinen, former China Bureau Chief, Los Angeles Times
"Clements' spare prose, bad-boy wit and encyclopedic knowledge of Asian facts, gossip and trivia put paid to any misgivings about uttering 'history' and 'page-turner' in the same breath. This succinct chronicle of China's rise to global power is essential reading for businessmen, politicians and creatives." --J. Christopher Westland, Author of Red Wired: China's Internet Revolution and Overseas Chair Professor / Thousand-Talents Plan Scholar at Beihang University
