Summary

In 1850, China was the 'sick man of Asia.' Now it is set to become the most powerful nation on earth. The Penguin History of Modern Chinashows how turbulent that journey has been. For 150 years China has endured as victim of oppression, war, and famine. This makes its current position as arguably the most important global superpower all the more extraordinary. Jonathan Fenby's comprehensive account is the definitive guide to this remarkable transformation.
