Nov 02, Vaughn rated it really liked it. Wrote a paper about it; Lieberthal is actually a senior fellow at the Brookings Institute: This book is strong in its depiction of the history of modern China and liebertjal influences on the China of today.
The writing becomes weak because of lack of clarification. For example, in Wrote a paper about it; Lieberthal is actually a senior fellow lleberthal the Brookings Institute: If these leaders are so important to local economy—as he has stated, the smaller, more local government has more power than a large congress—then why is it that he never gives their titles?
His citations support his framework, but his rationale and overabundance of generalities fail to prove true. Lieberthal did what he had set out to do: However he left questions unanswered about who the people of the Chinese government are and what drives them. His lirberthal overview in the beginning and middle of the book was specific and detailed about the leaders of liebertthal through each stage in modern China, especially about what led them to be leaders, Mao Zedong and Deng Xiaoping in particular.
The explanation of the current organizational structure of the Party and the Center described the breadth of the positions, their level of power, and scope of influence.
He never names who is in charge, how they arrived there, or why they choose the policies they do. A chart would have been helpful because even Lieberthal admits that this system was too complex. This focus on the government is good in the sense that there is too much information to go through and too little exact references for him to use.
His compilation and analysis of the structure was organized according to linear time, which is like any other history book, and he made certain the setting and characters at the beginning of the book were detailed.
I was expecting this to be a textbook loeberthal was not disappointed. Lieberthal is explicit enough to at least let the reader have a good conversation about these events at a dinner party. Jun 13, May Ling rated it really liked it Shelves: A very interesting and accurate text of Chinese history and the themes which have shaped the current century.
While many seem to idealize and criminalize the characters representing ideology, Lieberthal does a wonderful job describing them as the people they were, the conflicts they inspired, and their motivations to drive the country in the bizarre manner of China through the last century.
The reason I docked it a star was because I felt the section on Women lieberthla China, while somewhat accurate, A very interesting and accurate text of Chinese history and the themes which have shaped the current century.

The reason I docked it a star was because I felt the section on Women and China, while somewhat accurate, missed the point of the positives that came out of the Maoist period. I won’t use this forum to discuss govsrning unrelated topic other than to say the alternative argument is actually equally as compelling. His treatment of this one topic in this manner is striking in a book that is more fair than most in its depiction of the weirdness that was China during the last century.
I would definitely consider assigning this book for a classroom, but would consider adding alternative opinion pieces to certain sections.
