China and the World Since 1750Book - 2012
In "Restless Empire," author Odd Arne Westad, professor of international history at the London School of Economics and Political Science, explains how the future of China will be affected by its ability to relate to the outside world, while at the same time protecting its own stability. Spanning the time between the Quing Empire of the eighteenth century to the People's Republic of the twenty-first century, this is essential reading for anyone interested in the past and future of China.
