Now in its sixth edition, this book has been updated to examine the return of Hong Kong in 1997 and the upcoming return of Macao in 1999. Hsu discusses the end of the last vestiges of foreign imperialism in China, as well as China's emergence as a regional and global superpower. U.S.-Chinarivalry and the prospect of unification between China and Taiwan are also considered.
Immanuel C. Y. Hsu is at University of California, Santa Barbara.
