This is the comprehensive study on China. John Bryan Starr has thoroughly researched the changes in the country's politics, military history, society, culture and China's notoriously vicious human rights policy. He looks at the challenges the country is facing at present and analyses how it can survive as one of the few bastions of communism in the 21st century.

An excellent introduction to China for anyone in search of solid but concise information about that complicated country. Packed with facts and figures, but enlivened with firsthand observations, Starr's book is straightforward and unpretentious, like the presentations of an informed tour guide. * New York Times Book Review *
