I chose 5 Star rating because the book is very well researched, and beautifully written. Having visited China and seen many of the locations, it added a new depth of knowledge about China and its place in the world today. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in the growing power and influence of China today. The descriptions and narrative of the fluctuating power struggles, and the struggle to modernise against traditional opposition are fascinating as is the writer's understanding of the personalities and human qualities involved.
