Description

This concise contemporary history of the People's Republic of China has been substantially revised to take full account of the aftermath of the 1989 confrontation in Tiananmen Square. Telling the story of China since the death of Mao, it examines the bold economic reform of the 1980s and critically analyzes the cry for democracy which tragically led to bloodshed in Tiananmen Square. Looking to the future, it also examines the efforts of China's ageing leadership to regain control and to find a place in a radically changed international environment.show more
