Liu Binyan: The Man Who Changed China

From EastSouthWestNorth Weblog:

There is a newly published book, The Man Who Changed China: The Life and Legacy of , written by an American businessman Robert Lawrence Kuhn with the cooperation of the subject, his friends, relatives and associates. I have not read the book, so I won’t say anything.

Here are two reviews:

* John Walsh in Asian Review of Books

* Tom Plate in Asia Pacific Media Network

What do the Chinese think? I am going to translate an article by Liu Binyan (刘宾雁). Now this is not a book review, because Liu does not appear to have read the book in detail. What he has done is to give his assessment of Jiang and then predict what the book is likely to cover and, more interestingly, will not be able to cover because the author will not be able to elicit any opinions.
