A fascinating and highly important book… It is impossible within such a brief review even to summarize the wealth of material presented… Its authors have brilliantly sketched in the background for the writings they reproduce and have also worked into their text very illuminating biographical notes on the Chinese writers.American Historical Review

For those who are interested in intellectual history this book is a brilliant combination of commentary and documents on nearly a century of Chinese thought… The authors have themselves woven the contributions of others into a meaningful pattern.Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science

The documentary survey by Teng and Fairbank, which through an excellent selection of material makes available in English the most important documents of each period and each point of view, providing a kaleidoscopic picture.World Politics
