For many, China and its history are known only through stylized images that generations in the West have cherished—or reviled—as truth. With his command of character and event, the product of thirty years of research in the field, Spence dispels those myths. Through four hundred years of Chinese history, from the Ming Dynasty to Tiananmen Square, Spence fashions the astonishing story of the effort to achieve a modern China, drawing upon the ideas and emotions of its reformist Confucian scholars, poets, novelists, artists, and visionary students.
