Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up The dramatic story of American-Chinese relations over the last 200 years has been covered in several first-class young adult books on Chinese history. In this one, Lawson maintains an unusually objective tone, but his focus on Chinese relations with the U.S. necessarily excludes the background material necessary to do justice to China's long-lived cultural values. Thus, a teenager reading this could well ask, ``Why didn't the Chinese adopt the democratic attitudes espoused by the Western-educated students?'' On the other hand, Lawson does give excellent accounts of the effects of Chinese history on America, such as the clipper ships, the Flying Tigers and the China Lobby. Other books on modern China, such as the Loeschers' China: Pushing Toward the Year 2000 (HBJ, 1981) and John R. Roberson's China from Manchu to Mao (Atheneum, 1980) have a broader focus in covering China, giving a much better picture of its culture, and they use the modern (Pinyin) spellings, as Lawson does not. Looking to the future, Lawson notes the Chinese Communist's evident abandonment of their formerly rigid Marxism-Leninism as a turning toward the West, but cautions that these tendencies could change again. A book that will be of value in most libraries. Jonathan R. Betz-Zall, Sno-Isle Regional Library, Lynwood, Wash.
