New China

16 Oct

cimg9232.JPGI started reading about China for my assignment on China-USA relationship. A friend recommended this book. It turned out that the book was not about the relationship, but about China’s road to communism. It’s written interestingly by its journalist-author. It gives an overview of the history just within 113 pages with 12pt font and 1.5 spacing. However, I’m rather skeptical with its balance – it gives the feeling a propaganda – because it shows only the successes of the communist party. I’d recommend this book for anyone who wants to understand China’s early stage nationalism movement but the book must be absorbed with caution.
