9780393934519: The Search for Modern China (Third Edition)

The leading textbook by the leading scholar.

This text, the classic introduction to modern China for students and general readers, emerged from Spence’s highly successful introductory course at Yale, in which he traced the beginnings of modern China to internal developments beginning in the early 17th century. Strong on social and political history, as well as Chinese culture and its intersections with politics, this paperback is a longstanding leader in the survey course on modern China.

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.
