9780713998320: The Penguin History of Modern China: The Fall and Rise of a Great Power, 1850-2008. by Jonathan Fenby

In 1850, China was the 'sick man of Asia'. Now it is set to become the most powerful nation on earth. "The Penguin History of Modern China" shows how turbulent that journey has been. For 150 years China has endured as victim to brutality on an unmatched scale, to oppression, to war and to famine. This makes its current position as the newest and, arguably, most important global superpower all the more extraordinary. Jonathan Fenby's clear and comprehensive account of China's recent past is the definitive guide to this remarkable transformation.

Review:

'His book is a miracle of thoroughness, truthfulness and readability - the perfect primer for a time when China is about to enter all our lives' Sunday Telegraph 'Jonathan Fenby's ... illuminating book [is] the first major history that looks at the country with the eyes of the 21st century rather than the 20th' - Rana Mitter, FT '[It] reads like a novel and is never less than thoughtful and compassionate for the fate of a much-abused people !
