Review quote

"Offers more insight into China than many books five times its length. It's fun as well as illuminating." --Craig Calhoun, Director, London School of Economics and Political Science "In a series of provocative and playful essays, Jeffrey Wasserstrom's Eight Juxtapositions takes us on a light-hearted and clear-eyed tour of the Chinese landscape. With stops at Tiananmen Square and the Shanghai Expo, the Berlin Wall and the Sistine Chapel, Wasserstrom helps us to see China in a more complex, more realistic, and certainly more interesting way." --Leslie T. Chang, author, Factory Girls
