Summary
Klaus Mühlhahn situates modern China in the nation's long, dynamic tradition of overcoming adversity and weakness through creative adaptation--a legacy of crisis and recovery that is apparent today in China's triumphs but also in its most worrisome trends. Mühlhahn's panoramic survey rewrites the history of modern China for a new generation
Summary
A narrative panoramic history of China moves beyond the standard framework of Cold War competition and national resurgence to explore the nation's resilience through formidable historical challenges and its 21st-century ascendance to changes in political leadership and economic policy
