As the first book of its kind, China at War: An Encyclopedia expands far beyond the conventional military history book that is focused on describing key wars, battles, military leaders, and Reviews: 1.

        Mitter's book is enlivened by extracts from the writing of Chinese people who endured the war and also from many interesting foreigners who reported from wartime China. With the aid of the Soviet Union and the United States, China fought Japan during World War II. But in the process between 10 and 25 million Chinese civilians died from war-related injuries. These 5 books about World War II in China tell stories both real and fictionalized about this horrific — and many say forgotten — time period in.

        “As we make clear in the book, the story is a work of fiction, not an act of prediction,” Cole said. “Neither of us want a war with China or Russia. We want to avoid that.   In a short book pointedly titled “Avoiding War with China” (University of Virginia), Amitai Etzioni has a more concrete idea of how China should be .

And as you would expect, given the setting, it is an expose of the horrors of war. But that is only the setting. The real theme, I believe, is the theme of cultural and generational change/5().

History, whether written by academics or popular writers, is usually delivered in easily recognizable chunks with familiar faces – the Pacific War, the Korean War, the Chinese Revolution, etc. But it is often the links between events that tell a more coherent story. Hans van de Ven, professor of Modern Chinese History at Cambridge University, has successfully provided these as he sees China.

China's mid-twentieth-century wars, topose extraordinary interpretive challenges. Much is at stake politically in how this story is told.
