The significance of Sun Yat-sen's political thought has rarely been appreciated though he is hailed as the Father of Modern China.

Rezensionen
'In this well-crafted study, Audrey Wells restores [Sun's] reputation, demonstrating the importance and influence of his political thought.' - Robert Benewick, The Times Higher Educational Supplement

'[an] informative, lucid history of Sun Yat-sen's career, his thinking, and his influence on China as well as on various leaders of developing nations of the last century.' - Ramon H. Myers, The China Quarterly

'In this well-crafted study, Audrey Wells restores [Sun Yat-sen's] reputation, demonstrating the importance and influence of his political thought... Well's deft analysis demonstrates how Sun's project reveals 'the problems of grafting a new flexible political system on to a previous oppressive old one'. At the same time, there is a vision of an alternative to authoritarian regimes and liberal democracies that may have relevance for the developing world.' - Robert Benewick, Department of Politics, University of Sussex
