Out of Mao's Shadow
Out of Mao's Shadow
By Philip P. Pan (Simon & Schuster, $28)

As the former Beijing bureau chief for the Washington Post, Pan has had a front-row seat to what he calls the "struggle for China's soul" between capitalism and authoritarianism. But, unlike many books in this genre, Pan brings the battle alive through vivid portraits of everyday people including entrepreneurs. This a dense and complex story, but one that is masterfully told.
