On China – Henry Kissinger

Henry Kissinger

In this sweeping and insightful book, Kissinger turns for the first time at book length to a country that he has known intimately for decades and whose modern relations with the West he helped shape. Drawing on historical records as well as his conversations with Chinese leaders over the past forty years, Kissinger examines how China has approached diplomacy, strategy and negotiations throughout history.

The Columbia Companion to Modern Chinese Literature

The Columbia Companion to Modern Chinese Literature

Kirk A. Denton

More than fifty short essays centered on specific writers and literary trends create an engaging and easily digestible history of Chinese literature from the Qing period (18951911) to today. The essays in this volume can be read sequentially for a chronological account or separately in conjunction with reading the literary works in Chinese or English-language translation. Each entry features author names and titles, as well as key terms and references, in English and in Chinese characters for readers who know or are learning Chinese, and each concludes with a bibliography of relevant primary and secondary sources.
