In 1971 Henry Kissinger took the historic step of reopening relations between China and the West, and since then has been more intimately connected with the country at the highest level than any other western figure. This book distils his unique experience, examining China's history from the classical era to the present day, describing the essence of its millennia-old approach to diplomacy, strategy and negotiation, and reflecting on these attitudes for our own uncertain future. A new postscript for this edition examines the argument that China and the West are inevitably heading for confrontation, and outlines a strategy of cooperation and coevolution instead. 'The most famous living practitioner of international statecraft . . . On China is part grand historical tour, part riveting memoir and part analysis.' Philip Sherwell, Sunday Telegraph 'An epic and, in some places, surprisingly moving book on China . . . human reality is very much present in his warts-and-all portraits of Mao and Zhou.' Simon Schama, Financial Times 'Fascinating, shrewd . . . informed by Kissinger's intimate first-hand knowledge of several generations of Chinese leaders.' Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times 'An elegant and erudite insight into the new world superpower.' Rana Mitter, Observer 'Absorbing . . . part reminiscence, part reflection, part history, and part intuitive exploration.' Jonathan Spence, New York Review of Books

An internationally recognized authority on Chinese history and a leading innovator in its telling, Cho-yun Hsu constructs an original portrait of Chinese culture. Unlike most historians, Hsu resists centering his narrative on China's political evolution, focusing instead on the country's cultural sphere and its encounters with successive waves of globalization. Beginning long before China's written history and extending through the twentieth century, Hsu follows the content and expansion of Chinese culture, describing the daily lives of commoners, their spiritual beliefs and practices, the changing character of their social and popular thought, and their advances in material culture and technology. In addition to listing the achievements of emperors, generals, ministers, and sages, Hsu builds detailed accounts of these events and their everyday implications. Dynastic change, the rise and fall of national ambitions, and the growth and decline of institutional systems take on new significance through Hsu's careful research, which captures the multiple strands that gave rise to China's pluralistic society. Paying particular attention to influential relationships occurring outside of Chinese cultural boundaries, he demonstrates the impact of foreign influences on Chinese culture and identity and identifies similarities between China's cultural developments and those of other nations.
