Marie-Claire Bergère, author of Sun Yat-sen

R. Bin Wong

A fascinating book that offers a wealth of material on issues and events that are not well known. The prose is informal and engaging, bringing the reader into the problems Brook faced in researching such a sensitive topic. The stories he explores are part both of a distinctive Chinese history and a common (and difficult) history of conquest and rule in the twentieth century.
R. Bin Wong, Director, UCLA Asia Institute
