Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A survey of modern Chinese history, primarily for college undergraduates and lay historians, that fills the gap between textbooks that are too lengthy or detailed in their coverage of the imperial period and those which, if devoted to the communist era, are incomplete in their treatment of the all-important 19th-century background. Paper edition (unseen), $13.95. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
