Jonathan D. Spence, "The Search for Modern China"
W W Norton & Co | 1990 | ISBN: 0393027082 | siPDF | 876 pages | 26.3 MB
The history of China is as rich and strange as that of any country on earth. Yet for many, China's history remains unknown, or known only through the stylized images that generations in the West have cherished or reviled as truth. With his command of character and event—the product of thirty years of research and reflection in the field—Spence dispels those myths in a powerful narrative.
