"By setting Sun Yat-sen in his proper historical context, this excellent biography not only resuscitates a major historical figure but constitutes one of the best histories we have of the late Qing and early Republican period."Frederic Wakeman, University of California, Berkeley "This is a most welcome book, one that everyone interested in modern China has wanted for a long while. It is a readable, balanced, and judicious study . . . the most thorough book about Sun in a Western language, and so minutely researched that it goes far beyond any existing study." American Historical ReviewBergere, Marie-Claire is the author of 'Sun Yat-Sen', published 2000 under ISBN 9780804740111 and ISBN 0804740119.
