Reviews

Praise for Alain Peyrefitte's The Immobile Empire

"A fascinating study of cross-cultural misunderstanding."
--The Chicago Tribune

"A rollicking good story with obvious and immediate parallels for today."
--The American Spectator

"Extraordinary . . . at once a marvelous adventure tale, a dramatic reenactment of a decisive confrontation between East and West and a revealing comparative study of two cultures, each believing itself the world's most civilized."
--Publishers Weekly "An elegant, illuminating and delightful book."
--South Florida Sun-Sentinel "Painstakingly researched, gracefully written. . . . A smooth translation. . . . Peyrefitte's nearly day-by-day account will fascinate Sinologists and students of East-West affairs."
--Kirkus Reviews
