really liked it
bookshelves: china-history, political
Read in August, 2011

An excellent introduction to understanding the history of and current issues relating to China.

Being that it is an "introduction" type book my only criticism is that Mr Starr forgets that people outside of America do read his books as well as this book is one hundred percent targeted to an American readership with his 'like us in America.." type statements. Very irritating but not something that can not be ignored.

As a first read on China I can highly recommend it.
