Rezensionen
"What a splendid idea: to write a history of China through its relationship with water. Far-fetched you might think: not in the least, as you will find immediately you start to read this fascinating book ... You will never think of China in quite the same way again." Martin Jacques, author of WHEN CHINA RULES THE WORLD
