Book Description: Hong Kong University Press, 2009. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Through the Looking Glass is wonderful and layered. On one level, it is a delightful insight into the antics of the foreign press corps in an exotic land -- a bit like Scoop, but true. On another, it is a historical treasure trove; we learn how Hemingway and Marx saw China, and we revel in the story of Queen Victoria's Pekinese dog, "Lootie". Lastly, it holds a "looking glass" up to the imperfections of perspective that is as relevant now as ever." -- James Kynge, former Financial Times Beijing Bureau Chief and author of China Shakes the World.
