Reviews

"The explanation of China's relations with Europe often avoids the story of the national in favour of a more convenient if misleading European truth: historically, as part of colonial oppression; today, as the European Union. The great strength of this book is that it gets beyond Europe to explain and understand Italy's interactions with China in terms of Italians and their specific contributions to a far more complex history." David S. G. Goodman, Professor, and Academic Director, China Studies Centre, University of Sydney, Australia

"This timely volume offers a systematic, multidisciplinary assessment of relations between Italy and China in modern times." Alessandra Lavagnino, Professor, and Director, Contemporary Asia Research Centre, University of Milan, Italy

"An outstanding research framework leading to an articulate assessment of Italy-China relations." Wang Yizhou, Professor, and Associate Dean, School of International Studies, Peking University, China
