Yangtze: Nature, History and the River

Lyman Van Slyke, Author Addison Wesley Publishing Company $9.66 (0p) ISBN 978-0-201-18384-9
Some 300 million people now live on the banks of the 3900-mile-long Yangtze. Van Slyke here explores the river's place in Chinese history. PW found the book to be ``an admirable attempt to pierce the paradox of a people steeped in sense of place, yet ever on the move.'' (Apr.)
