9789812101778: To Act Is to Know: Chinese Dilemmas

The emergence of China as a global presence in the recent past has led to a growing interest in the country and how the Chinese have coped in the face of rapid change. It has also focused the thoughts of observers on the role that the country's past has played in its rush into modernization, and the issue of how the Chinese have struggled to reconcile their past with their present and future. The reissue of this collection of essays reflects the idea that China's past and history remain vital in the Chinese mind.
