More About To Change China by Jonathan D. Spence
 
 
 
Overview
From "the best known and most talented historian of China writing in English today" (Los Angeles Times), an examination of a diverse collection of Western foreigners who attempted "to change China"

"To change China" was the goal of foreign missionaries, soldiers, doctors, teachers, engineers, and revolutionaries for more than three hundred years. But the Chinese, while eagerly accepting Western technical advice, clung steadfastly to their own religious and cultural traditions. As a new era of relations between China and the United States begins, the tales in this volume will serve as cautionary histories for businessmen, diplomats, students, or any other foreigners who foolishly believe that they can transform this vast, enigmatic country.
