by James Mann
Our Price: $24.00
This is the inside story of the people, forces, politics, and diplomacy that have shaped contemporary relations between the United States and China. James Mann, the Beijing bureau chief for the Los Angeles Times from 1984 to 1987, draws on hundreds of newly uncovered government documents, scores of interviews, and his own experiences in writing this investigative history.
A revelatory history of the complicated and combative relationship between the world's biggest and most powerful nations -- by the former Beijing bureau chief of The New York Times.

After years of denying his Germanness, he had to confront it at last.

Michael Lewis sets out on a safari through Silicon Valley to find the world's most important technology entrepreneur, the true representative of the coming age. All roads lead to a man -- Jim Clark -- who is about to achieve an unprecedented hat trick with the creation of his third, separate billion-dollar company: first Silicon Graphics, then Netscape -- which launched the Information Age -- and now Healtheon, a start-up that may turn the $1.5 trillion health-care industry on its head.
