A new book on Deng Xiaoping

Harvard professor Ezra Vogel has written a new book on Deng Xiaoping, the former Party leader and the chief architect of China's opening-up policy, entitled "Deng Xiaoping and the Transformation of China". According to former US National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski, this book is "not just a definitive biography of a world-class leader, but also the most authoritative and riveting account of the secretly contrived U.S.-Chinese strategic accommodation of 1978 and of how that in turn facilitated China's domestic transformation."

Here are three book reviews from The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and The Economist.
