"An ambitious--in fact, audacious--book. As far as I know, no one else has attempted such a wide-ranging analysis, and comparison, in depth of these two countries--which are not only the most populous countries in the world but among the most complex ones. I do not know anyone else today who would have either the temerity or the ability to make the kind of sophisticated, subtle, comparative analysis that Taylor does of these two great countries. If he had asked my opinion, before he started, on whether he should attempt to write such a book, I probably would have advised him not to attempt the impossible. But in my opinion he pulls it off successfully. In short, I think it is a real tour de force." A. Doak Barnett, Johns Hopkins University
