"Benson presents an authoritative introduction to an essential chapter of world history. In a crisp narrative and well-chosen accompanying materials, she provides a solid foundation for understanding China in recent history and its global role today." Jeremy A. Murray, California State University, San Bernardino, USA "Professor Benson offers a balanced and succinct introduction to the history of the PRC. A particular strength is her analysis of the challenges facing China, such as environmental crisis and economic inequality, as well as the opportunities created by market reforms. The text is supplemented with a useful glossary and more than thirty key documents illustrating the momentous changes China has experienced through revolution and reform."
