Editorial Reviews

"A father-and-daughter team who between them have published many books on Asia (e.g., The Girl from Purple Mountain ) here provides 100 A-to-Z chapters offering extensive coverage of practical Chinese history, culture, and customs. Topics range from banquets, bargaining, and body language to the one-child policy, Three Gorges Dam, and Wen Jiabao (who became premier in 2002). The tone is light, but the information is well chosen for general readers and travelers."—Library Journal
