Textbook for a course on Modern Chinese history, focusing on the question "is China modern?". Spence asks this question time and again. Through supplying ample historical and textual evidence, he forces the reader to come up with an answer - one that is never completely a yes or no, for each of the different stages he explores in this work. Also, the professor teaching the course could have something to do with this feeling.

This book complements Spence's Search for Modern China quite well.
