Book summary

Between May, 1976, while Mao was still alive, and 1997, when Deng Xioaping died, was a time of tremendous change in China: from the "Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution" to the affluent eighties and nineties, from socialism to what looks like unrestrained capitalism, and from a mysterious country wrapped in isolation to one of the key players in modern international affairs. It's a dramatic story that involves a fifth of the human race and impinges on the rest.
"I am moved to get down on paper my memories and observations about my twenty-five year experience with China. Neither a eulogy nor an exposť, just as honest an account as I can make it of the China I saw and experienced." [via]
