"Paul Cohen shows us again how a master historian works."—Timothy Brook, Professor of History, University of Oxford

"An important work for understanding modern China's desire to shake off its 'century of shame.' It takes us to a deeper level of understanding China's sometimes fragile national psyche."—Ian Johnson, The Wall Street Journal

"Like all of Cohen's work, this is a stunningly insightful analysis. It is, without exaggeration, a tour de force, opening up a new world for understanding Chinese political culture. The book is extraordinarily important."—Keith Schoppa, author of Blood Road: The Mystery of Shen Dingyi in Revolutionary China
