I have just returned from China and Tibet and this book is extremely interesting because of the way the author travels the silk road and explores Chinese history throughout the ages in the various sites along the way. He seamlessly travels from 1000 BC to the Cultural Revolution to the Roman attempts to conquor China and how all these events have an impact on Chinese culture and philosophy as it exists today. He travels through China at the time of the SARS epidemic and his expereinces shed a great deal of light on the political and social institutions as they exist today. I found this to be a marvelous and interesting book.
A real thriller. Mitch is set up to be killed by someone in CIA but who can he trust?
It takes a while to get started but the background is necessary to understanding and appreciate the author's analysis of how the best of intentions to increase freedoms and political participation by more people have not gone as planned. The author offers some insight as to the problems sought to be corrected, what went wrong, and some ideas of what needs to be done. A very good book for those interested in the political processes taking place in America today
