Reviews


"Like the heroes of a Hollywood Western riding into town to clean up a mess, Pantsov and Levine have swept into the unruly genre of contemporary Chinese biography. Pantsov contends with Soviet archives, while Levine wrangles Chinese-language materials and secondary sources in English. Both bring prodigious energy and research firepower to their work." -Foreign Affairs


"Pantsov and Levine do well to highlight Deng's studied indifference to the endemic and flagrant corruption that his reforms occasioned... Commendable work."--Jeffrey Crean, Journal of American-East Asian Relations
