Spence and Chin do a gripping job of capturing the anxiety, adventure, and hardship of China's twentieth century. Their photo-laden account is almost stomach-turningly dramatic, not in a shocking way, but because it conveys the vertigo of upheaval, destruction, and transformation. Perhaps no other nation, not even Russia, went through so much trauma and change in this century. And Spence and Chin's prose gives detailed insight into its stream of titanic events. --author of A Galaxy of Immortal Women: The Yin Side of Chinese Civilization
