Grasso believes China's problems comes solely from the West. Purchase this book to gain an okay overview on China. Just pay attention to the facts and you should be able to get as much out of this book as you can. Confucianism is deeply ingrained within the Chinese culture and every event should be analyzed through a Confucian lens, especially 20th century China which rejected Confucianism. This is the only concerns that I have on this text, though they are valid and quite important. Grasso does introduce shocking statistics to the reader on all the death and destruction that occurred in China. It got so bad there, the reader is forced to wonder how China managed to survive.

It was a fairly good review when I purchased this book years back. Hopefully its been updated a little bit since. Good read. Very understandable. Incisive view into modern Chinese politics, a bit of backdrop for understanding.. Good for any politics or history of China course at college level.

I purchased this for a class. I found it to be informative and well written. It doesn't get into deep and lengthy details about historical events, but rather very excellently and concisely provides a general overview of Chinese history beginning in the 19th century up to the present. Plus, the best part is it is smartly written in very easily understood terms-or layman's terms. One doesn't need a PhD to read this book. In short, I enjoyed it very much. I wouldn't have read this voluntarily on my own, but I'm very glad it was required reading for my class.

This book is one of my textbook. I can honestly say this is a great book. The book provides the reader with the history of China in the Twentieth century and an overall theme of Chinese traditional value. The book gives a good explaination of what make China who they are today.

The first 2 chapters are about rough history of ancient of China and Chinese traditional value. The rest of the book is about the history from early communist revolution to present.

The language is accessible, easy to read, but provide a good academic ground. This book is actually a text for one of my subject in Master course. But, it's very easy to read that should be consider as a casual reading too.

This is history carefully and faithfully crafted. It was a pleasure to read this book. Human nature is paraded throughout the whole book. You will be wiser after reading this history of China.

Besides the fact that this was specifically designed to be a textbook (whatever that means) ... While this book focuses on China's history in the modern period, the authors claim that, "an understanding of contemporary China requires an appreciation of it's rich historical traditions." And they've done an excellent job of looking back without losing their focus or boring the reader.
