About the Author:

Timothy Cheek holds the Louis Cha Chair in Chinese Research at the Institute of Asian Research at the University of British Columbia.

Review:

"Timothy Cheek offers a remarkably comprehensive and perceptive account of Chinese history in the post-Mao era. He is eloquent in appealing for a critical but fair and balanced view of contemporary China’s successes and failures. The general reader, the student and the China scholar alike will profit from reading this thoughtful volume." -- Maurice Meisner, Harvey Goldberg Emeritus Professor of History, University of Wisconsin at Madison

"This is a concise, systematic and illuminating introduction to the ways in which China as a complex nation-state works and is experienced by the Chinese during the tumultuous two and half decades of reform. It will appeal to students taking introductory courses on China as well as smart lay readers interested in understanding contemporary China beyond the usual, hackneyed journalistic formulations." -- Adam Yuet Chau,University of London  "Timothy Cheek provides readers with a lively introduction to the key dilemmas facing the world’s most populous country. Written in an engagingly accessible style and particularly good on the protean nature of the Beijing regime and common foreign misconceptions of the PRC. Living with Reform: China since 1989 is an insightful and timely publication." -- Jeffrey N. Wasserstrom, University of California, Irvine
