China's Bitter Victory by James C. Hsiung
Book Description"China's Bitter Victory" is a comprehensive analysis of China's epochal war with Japan. Striving for a holistic understanding of China's wartime experience, the contributors examine developments in the Nationalist, communist, and Japanese-occupied areas of the country. More than just a history of battles and conferences, the book portrays the significant impact of the war on every dimension of Chinese life, including politics, the economy, culture, legal affairs, and science. For within the overriding struggle for national survival, the competition for political goals continued. China ultimately triumphed, but at a price of between 15 and 20 million lives and vast destruction of property and resources. And China's bitter victory brought new trials for the Chinese people in the form of civil war and revolution. This book tells the story of China during a crucial period pregnant with consequences not only for China but also for Asia and the world as well. Addressed to students, scholars, and general readers, the book aims to fill a gap in the existing literature on modern Chinese history and on World War II.

China into Its Second Rise, Hardback (March 2012)
Intends to de-mystify China, by tracing the rationale for contemporary developments to their roots in the country's tradition (as well as borrowings from foreign sources) and to unravel the puzzle about the sustained, incredibly rapid economic growth over the years, which defies conventional economic theory.
China and Japan at Odds, Hardback (October 2007)
Drawing upon history, geopolitics, geoeconomics, and international law, this book examines the two Asian powers at the bilateral, regional, and global levels. Throwing light on the complex tangle of Sino-Japanese relations, it examines critical issues including oil feuds, the Taiwan factor, and implications for US interests in the Asia Pacific.
