He has interviewed many of the key figures who have shaped their diplomatic history and has combed through the public and private statements made by officials, as well as the extensive record of government documents and media reports. He presents a thorough and compelling account of the rivalry between these powerful neighbors and its influence on the region and the larger world.

Garver's superb combination of political science, physical travel, Chinese language sources, and personal interviews informs the reader at every page. - Allen S. Whiting, University of Arizona
