Nathan's Chinese Democracy with a fascinating history of liberal and democratic thought in the s and s, combined with a detailed study of the various democratic parties and institutions of the period The book begins with an excellent introduction to the period This book is at its best as a work of intellectual history As a major contribution to our understanding of democracy in twentieth century China, it should be of interest to political scientists as much as to historians.
In sum, this is an extremely interesting study of the 'hitherto little-known story' It is a tour de force, a truly impressive piece of scholarship. Help Centre. My Wishlist Sign In Join.
