Charis Chan is the author of several books about China. Peter Neville-Hadley first visited China in 1986, returning repeatedly to investigate new areas while improving his Mandarin. Abandoning a London-based career in arts marketing, he turned to writing about China, first contributing to the second edition of Cadogan Guides' Central Asia and then spending two years researching and writing China: The Silk Routes for the same publisher. He has since revisited China to fulfil commissions for the Sunday Times, and also written on Beijing, the Yellow River, Hong Kong and other Chinese destinations for various publications.Review:
These handsome, well-edited books from a Hong Kong-based publisher cover places few other guidebooks go.... The writers are particularly well-chosen....Odyssey fans tend to be adventurous travelers with a literary bent. If you're lucky enough to find an Odyssey Guide to where you're going, grab it. -- National Geographic Traveler, February 2000
Whole worlds are created in this fact-filled, wonderfully illustrated guide . . . -- Booklist
