Riassunto: Traces the history of China from the Boxer Rebellion to the present time through a collection of newspaper articles.
From School Library Journal:
This is the kitchen-sink approach to China with little bits of just about everything thrown in. The writing style is chatty and lightly informative, intended for beginners with no background on the country, and will whet readers' appetites for more substantial fare. Other books will correct some of the misinformation given here, largely through poor proofing. Names are sometimes misspelled; crucial punctuation is omitted, giving false impressions. Steele states that the pinyin transcription system (Mandarin standard) will be used, and then proceeds to reproduce Sun Yatsen in its familiar Cantonese form. (Chiang K'aishek is given in pinyin , Jiang Jieshi.) Steele's pronunciation addendum to his pinyin charts is bizarre and sometimes incorrect. The last Ming Emperor is presented as having hanged himself from a lotus tree--a neat trick since lotus grows under water. The 1989 Tiananmen massacre is given a single sentence. The full-color and black-and-white photographs accompanying the text are informative. Although there is a tendency to include pictures from Yunnan province, there is much photographic material new to children's books. McLenighan's People's Republic of China (Childrens, 1984) for the same age group and Major's Land and People of China (Lippincott, 1989) for older children present in-depth material and, despite the latter's illustrative shortcomings, will be more suitable for school reports. --John Philbrook, San Francisco Public Library
