A critique of America's flawed Asia policy that centres on US-Japan relations but harkens back to the same disastrous views that drew America into Vietnam. The technique is a narrative flow of short vignettes woven into longer chapters; the main strands are personal reflections and interviews.

White (politics, Princeton U.) shows how social diversification during the economic boom--treated in the first volume--has modified political norms and public practices in China. He finds the country following a typical post-revolutionary track toward decreased centralization and ideological fervor. He also finds that as the regime becomes more corporatist and less Lenninist, the traditional claims of intellectuals to state power have weakened and they have wondered off into regional or international interests. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
