9780393920857: The Search for Modern China: A Documentary Collection (Third Edition)

The most widely used primary-source reader for the modern China course, thoroughly revised and updated to reflect the new edition of Spence, The Search for Modern China.

The new edition of this outstanding documents collection displays a stronger blend of social history―pieces reflecting everyday life, family, social networks, and culture―and political history―critical proclamations, treaties, laws, and other public acts. Many of the documents are translated into English for the first time and available only in this book.

Informative headnotes accompany the selections, providing context and helping students with unfamiliar names, places, and events. This collection is the perfect source for a firsthand look at modern Chinese history.

Review:

Monumental.... History that is always lively, always concrete, always comprehensible. History at its best...all in the vivid, accessible style for which the author is well known.
