About the Author:

Senior Lecturer in Geography with reference to China at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London, and Editor of The China Quarterly

Review:

`Slender it may be, but it is not short of insights. This is particularly true of the Overview by Lucian W. Pye. If one could recommend to students or the educated public only one short essay about China during the past fifty years, this might be it'
Graham Hutchings, Asian Affairs
