Adding to the China Reading List…

In a move that would make Carl Yirka proud, here are the two new books that I’m reading:

Judith Shapiro, Mao’s War Against Nature: Politics and the Environment in Revolutionary China (Cambridge)

Mark Elvin, The Retreat of the Elephants: An Environmental History of China (Yale) (a very long book that I’m not optimistic that I’ll be able to read cover to cover)
