Summary: The past hundred years in Chinahave seen almost continuous transformation and upheaval. From Confucianist monarchy to warlordism, from fanatically doctrinaire socialist tyranny to almost doctrineless social-capitalism, Chinahas experienced political, cultural and economic disintegration, reunion, and revolution on an unprecedented scale. Beginning with the overthrow of the Emperor in 1911, Moise guides us through a c...entury of ever-unfolding drama with characteristic clarity and balance. Examining the effects of the communist revolution, he argues that in the early days Mao Zedong established the most effective government Chinahad ever known, and that even during the bizarre excesses and blood-letting of the Cultural Revolution, there were still issues that were dealt with in a rational and effective manner. Moving on to the developments since the death of Mao in 1976, in a section fully revised and updated for this new edition, Moise gives a nuanced account of the two sides of China: its spectacularly successful programme of capitalist economic development, and its continuing dictatorship. He contends that dictatorship is now much less total than it was until the mid-70s; although dissenters are still persecuted, their very existence is evidence of a significant loosening of repression. However, there is a heavy price being paid for the Chinese economic miracle. The environmental effects of this boom already stretch well beyond the borders of China. "Modern China"sends us a clear message: the rapid and fundamental change that has framed the last century has not slowed or stalled but acts as a pointer to the near certainty of significant further change. To understandChina's future we must understand its past. Edwin E. Moise is Professor of History at Clemson University, South Carolinaand a specialist in the history of Chinaand Vietnam. His previous works include "Land Reform in ""China""and ""North Vietnam"(1983) and "Tonkin Gulf and the Escalation of the Vietnam War" (1996).

    Clear, concise, enough information but not too much to overwhelm. The writing style was clear and easy to understand.

    History of Modern China - China from its opening to the West in the 1800s to the present.
