This collection is impressive for its comprehensiveness, with contributors providing numerous pointed observations… This is a highly informative, readable collection for scholars and nonscholars alike.Publishers Weekly

This book cuts through the cacophony of information, misinformation, and nonsense on China that circulates in our modern world to give us reliable answers to crucial questions about one of the world’s most important nations. Written by a who’s-who of experts on a variety of topics, it’s also a pleasure to read. With stylish essays on everything from elite politics to the classical Chinese novel, it should be on the shelf of anyone seeking to understand this fast-rising superpower.—Ian Johnson, author of The Souls of China

The China Questions is packed with erudite yet accessible commentaries on issues ranging from literature to ethnic diversity. The topical reach is impressive; readers will come away with information concerning novel ways of thinking about everything from early philosophical traditions to modern visions of utopia and dystopia, from international relations to struggles for political legitimacy.—Jeffrey Wasserstrom, author of China in the 21st Century
