summary Out of China ↠ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Ong often agonising process by which the Chinese had by the end of the 20th century regained control of their own country Out of China uses a brilliant array of unusual strange and vivid sources to recreate a now fantastically remote world the corrupt lurid modernity of pre War Shanghai the often tiny patches of 'extra territorial' land controlled by European powers one of which unnoticed had mostly toppled into a river the entrepôts of Hong Kong. History of China from 19th to 21st centuryRobert Bickers has written extensively about the history of China under foreign powers and the struggle to form a national identity by various regimes and nationalists Its a good read for ordinary laymen who are not well versed on the history of China but it may provoke controversy among China experts There are comprehensive accounts on foreign legations in large cities and on Cultural Revolution but accounts of Japanese invasion of the country is sparse Chinese people suffered tremendously from the invasion but in my opinion few were mentioned The battles that took the lives of millions on both sides are given a few lines I am also surprised by the scarce mentioning of activities by the Communists and the subseuent Long March to escape he Guomingtang And another economic disaster that the author wrote in a few lines was the rampant inflation that led to the victory of Mao s Communists These have greater conseuences on the migration of Chinese diaspora to South East Asia and the rest of the world Anyway the book is a good read for those studying foreign presence in China from 19th to 20th centuries
