What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“The amount of reporting that went into China’s Silent Army is truly impressive. It is the sympathetic accounts of ordinary emigrants’ experiences that provide the backdrop for the real insights of the book.” – Financial Times

“The Spaniards' research is prodigious and the facts they unearth startling....The Chinese should reflect on the questions the book raises.  To put it mildly, there appears to be a case to answer.” – Evening Standard

“Excellent macro-economic insights….But ultimately the human stories are what make [China’s Silent Army] so compelling….It ought to be required reading.”
Prospect
 
“Lively and humane….[China's Silent Army] offers essential information for all who wish to learn how the global reach of China Inc is transforming the lives of everyone on this planet.” – Literary Review
