Turmoil is gripping the presidential campaign of former Utah governor and Obama administration ambassador to China Jon Huntsman. A 4,000-word article in Politico detailed an internal campaign feud, and commentators say the Huntsman effort is unraveling.
A continuing, often bitter, argument among "China hands" is over where the introduction of elements of market economy and attendant technology would take communism "with Chinese characteristics."
It is summer and time to read books. I recall the late editor of the editorial page of The Washington Post, the sainted Meg Greenfield, making fun of the idea of summer books, but I have long filed her quip away as a quip that was quipless.

But now I leave evaluating the work to scholars, as some have already begun to do.
