Praise for Return to Dragon Mountain:
 
Selected as a “Best Book of the Year” by The Washington Post
 
“Westerners seeking to understand China should shelve that big pile of anxious new volumes on China’s economic ascent, and read instead Return to Dragon Mountain. Jonathan Spence is arguably the best living English-language Chinese historian . . . An extraordinary life and a fascinating story.”
The Cleveland Plain Dealer
 
“Spence takes us inside the mind of a fellow historian. . . . [Zhang Dai] left a timelessly human record of a pivotal and fascinating era, and Spence has employed patience and empathy to bring him back to life.”
The Washington Post
 
“Beguiling . . . Spence only enhances his fine reputation with seasoned perceptions of the accessible, multifaceted Zhang Dai.”
Booklist
 
“Beautiful . . . in Return to Dragon Mountain, Spence has himself opened an unsuspecting world, a magic-lantern realm lost until now and movingly retrieved.”
The New York Times Book Review
 
“Impressive.”
