From School Library Journal:

Grade 7 Up-Short chapters on the history of the Mongol Empire and the Communist era are followed by others that detail the advent of democracy, the economics of transition, the environment, the herding life, art, and the changing culture (religion, sports, games, holidays, and the media). The problems involved in such a transition are fully described. Each chapter concludes with numerous notes, often citing online sources. The annotated list for further reading consists primarily of adult materials. The format is dense, relieved only occasionally by an uninspired black-and-white photograph. The writing, while somewhat pedestrian, is clear, straightforward, and accurate, with a few very minor exceptions (e.g., a sculptor would cast rather than "carve" bronze images; and India, a part of Asia, cannot thus "intersect" with Asia). A solid choice for report writers and others needing detailed material on this country's last 80 years.
