The new Chinese empire, and what it means for the United States by Ross Terrill( Book )

18 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and Chinese and held by 1,005 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Terrill's fascinating political history shows why China remains, in the words of Lucien Pye, "a civilization masquerading as a nation." Drawing on years of study and observation as well as new research, Terrill brings dynastic China to life while illuminating the remnants of the old empire that still underscore China's domestic and foreign policies. The Chinese dynastic state's blend of idealism and realism, attachment to doctrine, paternalism, and obsession with unity continue to shadow today's China. The New Chinese Empire exposes the anachronism of this imperial-Leninist state in the modern world, and forecasts startling scenarios for the fate of the world's last multi-ethnic empire. Political crisis lies ahead, Terrill says, yet he depicts China's longer-term future, not in terms of a clash of civilizations, but of the universals of human nature and social change."--Jacket

"Indispensable to understanding the inseparable relationship between Mao and events in China over the last century. What's more, it's fascinating reading."- Chicago Sun-Times"Journalistic yet authoritative . . . lively and readable . . . insightful in . . . unraveling Mao's contradictions." --The New York Times "An illuminating full-length portrait . . ." --Los Angeles Times" Ross Terrill, probably this country's preeminent writer on China, has . . . given us a whole man to replace the two-dimensional representation . . ." --Boston Globe Everyone who came into close contact with Chinese dictator Mao Zedong was surprised at his personal habits. He would stay up much of the night, sleep during the day, and would sometimes remain awake for thirty-six hours or more, until he finally collapsed. Yet many who met Mao were impressed by his intellectual reach, originality, and kindness. It would seem difficult to reconcile these two views of Mao. But there was no divide between Mao the man and Mao the leader. This insightful biography by China scholar Ross Terrill provides a comprehensive account of this powerful and polarizing figure
