Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc. Review "Nick Kristof's and Sheryl WuDunn's work as correspondents in China was beyond compare, and now they have written a book every bit as astonishing. China Wakes is filled with anecdote, detail, and analysis of the highest order...This book demands reading, and yet it is a pleasure as well as an education."--David Remnick "Every page of China Wakes is trenchant, and I cannot think of a reportorial book on China so zealous in investigation and so painstaking in probing issues from every angle."--Ross Terrill, Foreign Affairs "Thought-provoking and absorbing...Few books on China have done so much to further our understanding. Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn share with the readers their wealth of information, keen observation and intelligent interpretation."--Nien Cheng, author of Life and Death in Shanghai From the Publisher "Nick Kristof's and Sheryl WuDunn's work as correspondents in China was beyond compare, and now they have written a book every bit as astonishing.
