Editorial reviews (3 reviews)


It’s an entertaining, only slightly exaggerated, insight into the way the world’s largest superpower works and how a few people with skewed ambitions can have an impact on countries far outside their orbit.

The Chinese aspects of “They Eat Puppies, Don’t They?” are disappointing. Mr. Buckley’s satirical insights about American-Chinese relations were worth looking forward to, but they will have to stay that way.
