    1. I learned that white, Christian, American people are evil and should all die in a fire. As soon as possible. Ok, actually that stuff is just in the first part about the Opium wars. Clearly Schaller knows little about this time period and attempted to make up for it with rhetoric. However, the middle part of the book is a nice run-through of China-US relations - especially the Cold War era. I liked the information about Vietnam.

    2. 200 pages on how China has changed in the last few decades and how it has affected relations with the US
