Review

"Written by one of the most distinguished scholars on China, this book brings clarity and insight into complex historical issues" (Jung Chang)

"Thorough, fast-moving, and consistently clear. Restless Empire gives an excellent introduction to the vagaries of China’s foreign relations over the last 250 years" (Jonathan Spence, author of The Search for Modern China)

"An authoritative and lucid history of China’s foreign relations from the peak of the Qing dynasty in the eighteenth century to the present day. Anyone seeking to understand the role China may play in our future world should start with this book" (Stephen R. Platt, author of Autumn in the Heavenly Kingdom)

"An essential guide to modern China’s often violent encounter with the rest of the world" (Frank Dikotter, author of 'Mao’s Great Famine')

Book Description

A prizewinning historian and expert on Chinese foreign relations examines China's relationship with the outside world over the last 250 years, showing how the past will set the course for China's future.
