Product description


Filled with insights, observations and anecdotes, Chatwin brings to life the past and present of one of the world s great cities in an account that is as thoughtful as it is informative. --Peter Frankopan, author of The Silk Roads: A New History of the World

Bringing together past and present, personal and political, Jonathan Chatwin gives readers a thoughtful and deeply-informed account of modern China through the marvellous device of a stroll down Beijing's longest avenue - and all in lucid and compelling prose. --Rana Mitter, author of Modern China: A Very Short Introduction

Even the most dedicated flâneur has to work hard to find the charm in Chang an Avenue, the main thoroughfare of the glorious mess of Beijing . But Chatwin walks the walk and, along the way, dissects the street, its denizens and its enduring role in China s history and collective modern traumas. --Paul French, author of Midnight in Peking
