Review quote

Shan provide readers with a powerful and mostly convincing reappraisal of Yuan based on both primary sources with due attention to traditional and revisionist scholarship. It will surely be a significant addition to the study of Yuan Shikai as well as modern China in the years to come. -- Qiang Fang, professor of East Asian History, University of Minnesota Duluth * China Review International, Vol. 24, No. 2 *
