"Clearly argued, well-researched and a useful read for anyone with an interest in how China will continue to emerge on the world scene." - Lloyd's List.
"In her extremely convincing book, [Shirk] shows that there is another 'emotional' side which, driven by unresolved internal tensions, could still push China into a military confrontation." - Geoff Dyer, Financial Times
"An eye-opener of a book, drawing on insider sources... Well researched and readable." - Tribune
"Now more than ever we need a realistic approach for dealing with China's rising power. Susan Shirk has an insider's grasp of China's politics and a firm understanding of what makes its leaders tick. China: Fragile
Superpower is an important and necessary book." - Brent Scowcroft, former U.S. National Security Advisor
"Shirk deals a dose of realism, outlining how China's incredible economic progress has produced great internal problems, which have led to enormous political sensitivity in its leaders." - Baroness Denise Kingsmill, Management Today
"Susan Shirk has written the definitive book at the right time. For those seeking an objective look at the new China, your search is over. The bonus is that Fragile Superpower is as fascinating as it is informative. A great accomplishment." - Madeleine K. Albright, former U.S. Secretary of State
