Fascinating book by Terrill, one of the great writers on Chinese subjects, in the aftermath of the Tiananmen Square massacre. He reassesses his ongoing infatuation with China and some of his earlier judgments. It is refreshing to see a writer put himself through this type of examination in public and he earns our deep respect by fessing up to some instances of shortsightedness. When you add the fact that Terrill writes really really well, this is essential reading for anyone who had read his earlier books (e.g., his biographies of Mao and Madame Mao.) ( )
