Peter Zarrow's China in War and Revolution

Finally, I have finished reading historian Peter Zarrow's China in War and Revolution, 1895-1949 (London, Routledge, 2005) which impresses me as one of the relatively balanced and objective English-language discourses on China's modern history or China's history in the quest for modernity. However, it is very interpretative and a certain amount of background knowledge of the general Chinese history is helpful to follow Zarrow's reasonings and arguments.

i think most of the people are now mature enough to laugh it off and ingore it. What's new? Money, sex, ghost stories and Big Foot to divert minds from serious affairs.

Great website - nice work. :)

I'm currently reading Zarrow's book and it helps to have your perspective and the resources you add.
