Summary
"This rich gathering of primary-source documents puts students in direct contact with the major characters and events in modern Chinese history. Revised to reflect updates to The Search for Modern China, third edition, this outstanding collection displays a strong blend of social history (pieces dealing with everyday life, family, social networks, and culture) and political history (critical proclamations, treaties, laws, and other public acts). Many documents are translated into English for the first time and are available only in this book."--Book cover, page [four]
