Reviews

These impressive conference papers by China specialists from across the world offer instructive views on the 60-year history of the People's Republic of China (PRC). From varied angles and in different tongues, the contributors discuss in fine interdisciplinary fashion important political, social, and cultural aspects of the PRC from 1949 to 2009...For a balanced, realistic understanding of China's past, present, and future, this assemblage of academic musings calls for a new paradigm to substitute for the conventionally Western-centered way of looking at China. -- G. Zheng * Choice *
