Review quote

'Gernet has accomplished with skill and vision one of scholarship's most daunting tasks, the writing of a one-volume history of China.' The Times Higher Education Supplement '... the English version will serve readers in an English-speaking world with a text-book of unchallenged value. The translation is smooth and stylish.' Modern Asian Studies
