From the Publisher"Xu's arguments are supported by rich archival materials from China, France, England, Germany, and the United States, which provide the most detailed discussion of China's involvement in World War I to date. It is also a successful combination of national and international histories... Xu Guoqi has indeed taken us beyond the "betrayal" of the Versailles Conference to emphasize the importance of the Great War in China's participation in the international community."
“Xu has written an insightful study of China's role in WW I. This book sheds new light on the development of China's modern national identity and reengagement with the international community. Highly recommended.”
"The book will interest those who focus on the Great War, are interested in the social and intellectual history of modern China, or American diplomatic history, particularly that relating to Woodrow Wilson. This is a coherent account of a very complex subject, broken down into manageable sections, and then unifies in a convincing conclusion."
- The Journal of Military History, Katherine K. Reist, University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown
"Xu's book is well written and well organized."
- The International History Review
"Xu Gouqi has set out to fill a lacuna in our understanding of the Great War. Further, he has placed the war in the broader spectrum of modern Chinese historical development. This is a coherent account of a very complex subject, broken down into manageable sections, and then unified in a convincing conclusion."

"The book provides a valuable account of an important aspect of China's modernization."
