From Library Journal:
This urbane and charmingly illustrated volume will please both the armchair traveler and the intrepid tourist. Although Wood offers canny and often original advice on the theory and strategy of touring, this book's strength lies in the well-conceived essays on Chinese history, culture, and contemporary life keyed to the interests of the traveler; they are light enough to be read on a Chinese train, sound enough to serve an introductory reader, and delightfully erudite to boot. The "further reading" is a useful annotated selection of literate travel books and fiction. This edition appears uncorrected from the 1988 British edition; unfortunately the Beijing Massacre of last June makes the hopeful comments on contemporary China outdated. Still, this ranks with Petra Haring Kuan and Kuan Yu-Chien's Magnificent China: A Guide to Its Cultural Treasures (LJ 9/1/87), and is highly recommended.
