Review quote

A masterful account of China's long and turbulent quest for modernity."-- Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.A"A fresh and significant work of synthesis: it is filled with bold generalizations, amusing and poignant juxtapositions, and the constant surprises of watching a senior scholar who knows all his sources but refuses to be type-cast."-- Johathan Spence"The best one-volume account of what has happened in China, and to China, during the past two decades."-- "Times Literary Supplement"'If I could not go to China with John King Fairbank, I would want to take along his new book, The Great Chinese Revolution, as the next best thing. this is an engrossing history written by a man who loves china and loves to write about it.-- Sol M. Linowitz
