A heroic figure in the shaping of modern China, Sun Yat-sen has engendered much controversy among scholars and historians. Now, drawing on new archival and documentary material, Sidney H. Ch'ang and Leonard H.D. Gordon have produced a comprehensive study of China's enigmatic revolutionary. In reviewing Sun's career as a revolutionary activist and theorist, the authors focus on Sun's writings, ranging from books and formal speeches to telegrams and personal correspondence. By undertaking a fresh scrutiny of Sun's oeuvre, the authors give us a compelling portrait of a man who was both a visionary and a pragmatist. Chang and Gordon help us understand the ideological foundation of Sun's revolutionay process, a foundation that influences Chinese events today. Of the four major documents constituting the core of Sun's legacy, the authors focus particularly on the San Min Chu I, the ideological doctrine that sets forth measures to bring about a new political and economic framework for China. The authors detail the evolution of Sun's views and the intellectual challenges he faced in integrating such often conflicting strands as traditional Chinese though, revolutionary strategy and objective, and communist theory.

In this succinct yet ample work, Zhao Tingyang as one of China's most distinguished and respected intellectuals, provides a profoundly original philosophical interpretation of China's story. Over the past few decades, the question where did China come from? has absorbed the thoughts of many of China's best historians. Zhao, keenly aware of the persistent and pernicious asymmetry in the prevailing way scholars have gone about theorizing China according to Western concepts and categories, has tasked both Chinese and Western scholars alike to "rethink China." To this end, Zhao introduces what he terms a distinctively Chinese centripetal "whirlpool" model of world order to interpret the historical progression of China's "All-Under-Heaven" tianxia identity construction on the central plain of China. In this book, Zhao forwards a novel and compelling thesis on not only how we should understand China, but also until recently, how China has understood itself.

For nearly two thousand years the Chinese Emporer, self-proclaimed ruler of `All under Heaven', demanded the obedience not only of his subjects within China but also of peoples throughout the known world. Maps played a crucial role in the administration of this vast system of states. Charts offoreign lands and images of the `barbarians' that populated them presented the world as the Chinese wanted it to be seen: with the Middle Kingdom as lord and other states as vassals paying tribute to it.In this richly illustrated history, Richard J. Smithshows how the Chinese depicted foreign lands and peoples in maps and encyclopedias through the centuries. He discusses the debates surrounding the production of maps, as well as their technical aspects and political, military and administrativeuses. Reproductions of many of the most beautiful and noteworthy maps of the Chinese world accompany the text.More than simple refelections of the lands and peoples they depict, these maps and illustrations are documents that reveal the evolving values of the grand and powerful society that produced them

A one-volume narrative history of China, from the earliest inhabitants to the twentieth century, for a popular readership China is a country with an ancient and highly sophisticated civilization of which the Chinese have been justly proud.When the countries of Europe were struggling to move beyond mud huts and stone tools the Chinese already had a highly complex society and were creating works of great beauty. Yet, although it has for many years been a source of great fascination to the West, the history of China remains a mystery to the layman. In this highly accessible narrative written for the general reader, Rayne Kruger produces a synthesis of Chinese history for the non-specialist reader. Rayne Kruger was born in South Africa and began his working life in a Johannesburg goldmine before becoming in succession a lawyer, broadcaster and actor. He emigrated to England in 1947 where he joined the BBC. He wrote a number of successful novels, followed by a history of South Africa (1959) Goodbye Dolly Gray, which has remained in print ever since. An astute business man, he then founded a property group. He subsequently went into partnership with his wife, the successful restauranteur and cookery school entrepreneur Prue Leith (business woman of the year 1990). He died on 21 December 2002.

From the former New York Times Asia correspondent and author of China's Second Continent, an incisive investigation of China's ideological development as it becomes an ever more aggressive player in regional and global diplomacy. For many years after its reform and opening in 1978, China maintained an attitude of false modesty about its ambitions. That role, reports Howard French, has been set aside. China has asserted its place among the global heavyweights, revealing its plans for pan-Asian dominance by building its navy, increasing territorial claims to areas like the South China Sea, and diplomatically bullying smaller players. Underlying this attitude is a strain of thinking that casts China's present-day actions in decidedly historical terms, as the path to restoring the dynastic glory of the past. If we understand how that historical identity relates to current actions, in ways ideological, philosophical, and even legal, we can learn to forecast just what kind of global power China stands to become--and to interact wisely with a future peer. Steeped in deeply researched history as well as on-the-ground reporting, this is French at his revelatory best.

It's the 1560s and Antinous Bellori, a boy of eleven, is exploring the woods above his home in the north Italian mountains when night falls. Suddenly fearful, the boy wanders blindly through the trees, sensing danger at every turn, until he comes, unseen, upon a clearing in which there stand two glowing beings, one carrying a spear, the other a flaming torch: angels ... This event is decisive in Bellori's life, just as encounters with angels have been for others throughout history. Beginning in the Garden of Eden and soaring right through to the present day, we revisit key moments when men have come face to face with these intermediaries of the divine: Cain and Abel cultivating their differences murderously; Lot's shame in Sodom; Noah's isolation before the Flood; Ezekiel tied to his bed, prophesying fiercely; and the death of Christ. Alighting upon these dramatic scenes - from the Bible and beyond - Knausgaard's imagination takes flight: the result is a dazzling display of storytelling at its majestic, spellbinding best.

The explosive, behind-the-scenes story of Donald Trump’s high-stakes confrontation with Beijing, from an award-winning Washington Post columnist and peerless observer of the U.S.–China relationship There was no calm before the storm. Donald Trump’s surprise electoral victory shattered the fragile understanding between Washington and Beijing, putting the most important relationship of the twenty-first century in the hands of a novice who had bitterly attacked China from the campaign trail. Almost as soon as he entered office, Trump brought to a boil the long-simmering rivalry between the two countries, while also striking up a “friendship” with Chinese president Xi Jinping — whose manipulations of his American counterpart would undermine the White House’s already disjointed response to the historic challenge of a rising China. All the while, Trump’s own officials fought to steer U.S. policy from within. By the time the COVID-19 pandemic erupted in Wuhan, Trump’s love-hate relationship with Xi had sparked a trade war, while Xi’s aggression had pushed the world to the brink of a new Cold War. But their quarrel had also forced a long-overdue reckoning within the United States over China’s audacious foreign-influence operations, horrific human rights abuses, and creeping digital despotism. Ironically, this awakening was one of the biggest foreign-policy victories of Trump’s fractious term in office. ​Filled with shocking revelations drawn from Josh Rogin’s unparalleled access to top U.S. officials from the White House and deep within the country’s foreign policy machine, Chaos Under Heaven reveals an administration at war with itself during perhaps our most urgent hour.

In 1966 Mao Zedong unleashed the Cultural Revolution, a brutal and bloody campaign aimed at obliterating the past and building a a new, egalitarian China on the rubble of its ancient civilizations.Now it is 1988 and while the tide of change has turned for the better, the legacy of Mao lingers on in the minds of former devotees and victims alike.Five years have passed since China's first opening to the outside world and the effects are undeniable.Initially overawed by foreign customs, China's young generation has become increasingly restless, frustrated by the rigid system that has bound them for so long.This book spans decades of turmoil, weaving individual suffering and anguish into a broader tapestry of mass political persecution and terror.It also captures the essence of the Chinese people: exasperating, stubborn, opinionated yet warm-hearted and resilient, which the outside world would ignore at its peril.Indeed, the Greek and Roman civilizations, the world's great religions and political philosophies, the Renaissance and the rise and fall of the great powers, the American Civil War and the two World Wars, are all taught and remembered as intrinsic to mankind's history, while China's great and enduring civilizations, its turbulent history and incredible creativity and inventions thousands of years before the Renaissance, are largely unknown in the non-Chinese world.Yet, China's past and present should be taught in schools and universities as they shaped the life, attitude and future of a quarter of our planet's population, aspiring to become the world's dominant economic, political and military power within the next twenty-five years.The lack of understanding shown by the world's political leaders for their Chinese counterparts' thinking on how to achieve these goals is perplexing.

For the people of Chuuk and for students of religion and Micronesian culture, this book pulls together and makes available in English the somewhat scattered published accounts (largely in German), along with Goodenough's own (as yet unpublished) information about religious beliefs and ritual practices in pre-Christian Chuuk. The materials are presented in a way that seeks to document and illustrate a particular approach, a functional one, to understanding the kinds of human concerns that give rise to religious behavior. Simply to describe traditional beliefs and rituals without the relevant social background information leaves the reader without any feeling for what were the emotional concerns, engendered by life in Chuukese society, that ritual practices helped people address. Ward Goodenough offers a theoretical introduction, the necessary background information about Chuuk and the ways in which members of Chuukese society experienced themselves and their fellows, the world view and overall set of beliefs providing the intellectual framework within which ritual practices were formulated and understood, and the various bodies of ritual practices. He concludes the book with a summary that pulls together how the rituals described appear to related to the emotional concerns that growing up and living in Chuuk tended to create.

The Great Wall of China is the largest man-made structure ever built, stretching for over 4,000 kilometres from central Asia, across the Gobi Desert, through the remote, cold mountains of northern China to end on the shores of the Pacific Ocean. Nathan Gray, a young New Zealand lawyer, wanted to be the first person in history to walk the entire length of the Great Wall. In October 2000 he set off with four fellow travellers – a Buddhist monk from Singapore, a Jewish photojournalist from Argentina, a Catholic recording artist from Italy and a Mormon golfer.Conceived as an idealistic trek to mark the millennium in cultural, racial and religious harmony, one month in reality bit. Blizzards, lightning strikes, thirst, starvation, snakes and police detention all took their toll. After 3,000 kilometres, having witnessed the fatal stabbing of a Chinese friend and being chased at gunpoint by soldiers, Nathan succumbed to physical and mental fatigue and returned to New Zealand. Unable to accept defeat, he returned three months later to complete the challenge; the final 1,000 kilometres.

The first complete book on the Tiananmen Square tragedy to date. Reveals how diplomats from the United States, Britain and Europe knew exact details of the impending massacre of the students in Tiananmen. A vivid narrative window into secret meetings in the Oval Office, CIA headquarter and the private compound of China's leaders. Over 100 interviewees contribute to an untold story.For the first time, Chaos Under Heaven reveals America's and the West's betrayal of the children of China, who, for a brief moment in history, brought democracy to their homeland. In this stunning book Gordon Thomas takes readers inside the tragic drama of those fifty-five days when the young people of China, crying out for freedom, rebelled against the Old Men of the Long March.At stake were America's and the world's roles in the future of China. Once castigated by Karl Marx as a "carefully preserved mummy in a hermetrically sealed coffin," China has become the superpower of the Pacific. As the students' demand for democracy escalated, the Western nations realized that their carefully cultivated ambitions for China were at risk. Their goal was to preserve the status quo.Here are just a few of the book's revelations:How professional diplomats from Britain, the United States, and Europe who knew the exact details of the impending massacre of the students in Tiananmen Square were ordered not to share that information with the students.How Barbara bush had her favorite television show, "Dallas," interrupted by the reports coming live from Tiananmen Square. Even then, with the massacre only hours away, her husband still refused to intervene, despite the fact that he had received intelligence reports from the CIA clearly stating that a massacre was imminent. How the huge financial involvement of some six hundred American companies in China was critical in President Bush's decision to do nothing about helping the students.Why China did not use its veto power as the Security Council gave Saddam Hussein a deadline for the Gulf War.But Chaos Under Heaven is much more than those headline-making stories. This vivid you-are-there narrative takes you into the inner sanctums of the Oval Office, the CIA headquarters at Langley, the private compounds of the leaders of China as they debated and fought over the great revolt. And finally, it shows in dramatic detail how the supreme leader, Deng Xiaoping, gave the orders for the execution of the students.Thomas also takes the reading into Tiananmen Square, at one point filled with over a millions people, and to the very podium where the student leaders debated their next step. It shows in harrowing detail the four hundred protesting Chinese students who agreed to starve themselves even if it meant their deaths, lessons they had learned from the hunger strikes of the Irish Republican Army.In writing Chaos Under Heaven, Gordon Thomas spent four months in China and Hong Kong, and around the Pacific rim, talking to students who escaped the Tiananmen Square massacre. He also interviewed Western diplomats in China and intelligence officers both there and in Washington, London, Paris, and Bonn. In all, he talked to over one hundred people who had been part of the revolution or served within the corridors of power.Gordon Thomas is the author or coauthor of thirty-one books, five of which have been made into successful motion pictures.In writing Chaos Under Heaven, Gordon Thomas spent four months in China and Hong Kong, and around the Pacific rim, talking to students who escaped the Tiananmen Square massacre.
