The book is an enjoyable read if you want to delve deep into the modern history and the rise of China’s communism, or more specifically, its offspring Maoism. It gives out a fairly objective retelling of the events, focusing mostly on the years under Mao’s leadership.

A balanced and lively history of the People's Republic of China, this remarkable book sketches the historical circumstances of the Chinese revolution and the cast of characters who seized power in 1949 after decades of national disintegration and defeat.

Oxford University Press, 1998 - 382 sayfa. Now completely revised and updated, this balanced and lively history of the Peoples Republic of China offers a narrative and interpretive appraisal of this great nation since its post-World War II beginnings. Opening with the sweeping changes that occurred when Mao Zedong and the Communists defeated Chiang Kai-shek in 1949 and took over a China which was still reeling from World War II, this text introduces the unique characters and events which have shaped recent Chinese history

A balanced and lively history of the People's Republic of China, this remarkable book sketches the historical circumstances of the Chinese revolution and the cast of characters who seized power in 1949 after decades of national disintegration and defeat. The author argues that Mao did not single-handedly shape China's recent history; rather, events grew out of the complex interaction between Mao, other major Chinese leaders, influential political organizations, and an often unpredictable population.

A Brief History of China tells of the development of a rich and complex civilization where the use of paper, writing, money and gunpowder were widespread in ancient times and where silk, ceramics, tea, metal implements and other products were produced and exported around the globe. It examines the special conditions that allowed a single culture to unify an entire continent spanning 10 billion square kilometers under the rule of a single man-and the unbelievably rich artistic, literary and architectural heritage that Chinese culture has bequeathed to the world.

It was really badly written. I couldn't stand the writing.

The purposes of Dietrich's book should be kept in mind. The book is not a detailed scholarly book and does not pretend to be. It is, however, a fair-minded and useful introduction to the PRC's history for students at the beginning undergraduate level. Students and China buffs must begin somewhere, after all, and Dietrich's book is as good as any (and much better than many) for this purpose. I have happily used the book for introductory classes I have taught in major U.S. and Canadian universities.
