Rezensionen
"A thoroughly competent study ... the glossary of Chinese terms isespecially useful..." Asian Studies Review

"In Bailey's account of china's major political milestones inthe twentieth century, the selection of facts and hisgeneralisations are sound and convincing. The book's greateststrength lies in the strategy of presentation [and is] a refreshingdeparture from the omniscient viewpoint and mononarrative of manytexts. The author has accomplished a great deal here... this bookdeserves very serious consideration for undergraduate and graduatecourses." Craig Dietrich, University of Southern Maine,Portland, USA
