THE CHINA MIRAGE The Hidden History of American Disaster in Asia

by | Read by Pete Larkin

History • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

Pete Larkin offers a solid narration of this examination of U.S. foreign policy on China. His tone is often engaging and sometimes conversational but always clear and easy to follow, even when navigating sentences with Chinese names. Occasionally, his efforts are undermined by the author's use of dependent clauses in the middle of sentences, which can make it difficult for listeners to link subject and verb. As the book's title implies, U.S. perception of China for nearly two centuries has been a mirage. That failure to see reality sometimes was manipulated by Chinese leaders and other times was due to our own misunderstandings or even delusions. The book is enlightening and translates fairly well to audio. R.C.G. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2015]
