About This Book

"A milestone in Western studies of China" -- John K. Fairbank

In this masterful, highly original approach to modern Chinese history, Jonathan D. Spence shows us the Chinese revolution through the eyes of its most articulate participants - the writers, historians, philosophers, and insurrectioinists who shaped and were shaped by the turbulent events of this century. By skillfully combining literary materials with the more conventional sources of political and social history, Mr. Spence provides an unparalleled look at China and her people and offers valuable insight into the continuing conflict between the implacable power of the state and the strivings of China's artists, writers, and thinkers.

"Absolutely rist rate; it is adventurous in form, scrupulous in content, passionate in its revelation of complex human drama." --Saturday Review

"With a novelist's flair for life and a historian's grounding in fact... there is no other work to match this in sweep, vivacity, and humanity." --Library Journal
