Ezra Vogel: A Biography of Deng Xiaoping
Muscular contemporary China with its metastasizing cities, staggering economic clout, and relentless modernization is so powerful an international force, it's hard to remember that only 35 years ago, China was a chaotic, closed country of 1 billion people, many of them desperately poor. The single actor most responsible for China's remarkable rise, and thus for today's geopolitical landscape, contends Ezra Vogel, is Deng Xiaoping. Vogel, the author of Deng Xiaoping and the Transformation of China, shows how this private, serious man dedicated his life to politics, and to China.
