Very brief and informal... like getting two paragraph answers to questions in a classroom. On the other hand, that is its beneficial point - one can read just one or two pages at a time.

This book is a superficial study of modern China. There is not much detail here.

It begins with several chapters covering bits and pieces of China's history, but it's not clear what this contributes to the final chapters.

There is some good stuff in here, and it's worth reading but don't expect much more than a few essays.
