From the Back Cover:

China exerts increasing influence on the global economy, and thecountry's fascinating and turbulent recent history demands ourunderstanding. This clear and convincing overview tells the storyof a century that saw three political revolutions and considerablesocial and cultural upheaval.

The author moves fluently between social, political and culturalhistory and frequently brings gender into the picture, showing thatevents such as revolutions can have very different effects on menand women. His exploration of the transformations China hasundergone integrates ideas from the very latest scholarship,reminding readers that history is not just about what happened, butalso about differing interpretations and approaches.

The book concludes with a discussion of recent reforms by theChinese Communist Party in its aim to raise the living standards ofthe country's 1.3 billion inhabitants and strengthen thefoundations of one-party rule.
