I am reading a great book thus far on China which has been highly recommended entitled “The Search for Modern China” by Jonathan D. Spence. After reading the first 100 pages I know a lot more about China and the Ming and Qing dynasties. It is also helpful reading guide books as well, I am reviewing my guidebook for our Beijing trip and when it talks about the Great Wall, Forbidden City and Summer Palace I know more in depth details about the history. China has a long history and things come in full circles and I believe China is going through another cycle. One emperor started to remove all the corrupt officials around China and currently in China the new Leader is starting to clean house and removing corrupt officials. I will keep updating my blogs with sections of the book as it relates to current China events. It is so interesting and how the current events relates to the past events.
Passionate for everything related to China travel.
