The Shortest History of China: Linda Jaivin at Gleebooks (NSW)
Modern China is seen variously as an economic powerhouse, an icon of urbanisation, a propaganda state or an aggressive superpower seeking world domination. In The Shortest History of China, Linda Jaivin distils a vast history into a short, readable account that tells you what you need to know, from China’s philosophical origins to its political system, to the COVID-19 pandemic and where the PRC is likely to lead the world.
In conversation with Benjamin Law.
