I have lived in China four and a half years and Jasper Becker's "The Chinese," gave me more insight into the reasons why things are the way they are here than any other source. The depth and immediacy of the work makes it easy to keep going even when the facts are sometimes brutal. He illuminates Chinese history and connects it to the problems of the present with grace and assurance. I kept saying, "Aha!" as I read and discovered the answers and causes I had searched for myself. Becker's writing has a fine way of "taking" the reader somewhere - as if curiousity and the need to know have created a path. His sources are terrific and the notes and bibliography alone make a fine reference.

He really understand to China and allows us to find out very interesting facts, but on the other side, it's very hard to read this book. After all it's one of the best books I have already read about China.
