“Deft reporting.”
—John K. Fairbanks, The New York Review of Books
 
“Full of observations that are worth a thousand glossies on the new New China.”
Time
 
“Lively, engrossing, informative.”
The Wall Street Journal
 
“Schell is very good at this kind of reporting, which requires an eye as selective as it is sharp.”
Newsweek
 
“Of all the books about China to appear in the last three years [this] stands with the very best.”
The Chicago Sun Times
 
“Offers more to reflect on than do many much heavier tomes.”
Business Week
 
“This short book is one of the most arresting of the spate of volumes to appear on China and the Chinese in recent years.”
—Larry McMurtry, The Washington Star
 
“No American writer catches the poignancy of the social encounter between Chinese and Americans as well as Orville Schell.”
—Ross Terrill
