What students say about China Rising:

  • 'This was the best book I used in Year 12.'
  • 'It has great historiography.'
  • 'The story could have been complex but it was told in an accessible way.'
  • 'I didn't sell the book when I finished the course - I had to keep it.'

Dr. James Leibold from La Trobe University says:

'The rich details and complex twists and turns of China's long twentieth century are vividly chronicled in China Rising. Written in a lively and engaging style, drawing on recent and cutting-edge scholarship, the book will help a new generation of Australians to understand better China's place in the world and some of the powerful ways in which the past continues to shape China.'
