The Great Trend of Civilization was numbered among the most influential social science books (a total of 20) in China in the first quarter of 2014.
Originally titled Backward, The Great Trend of Civilization is devoted to a comparative and contrastive interpretation of why China was backward from the start within historical and global contexts.
The author of the book has reviewed the historical development of China and compared the historical and geographical relationships between Europe and Japan. She has come up with an answer to the question about why the contemporary Chinese society has been perplexing its people at large.
Her discussion has finally pointed to a fact that challenges the cognition of the Chinese: China has long been a relatively country and the alleged Needham problem or question that people have been concerned is virtually a false proposition.
The innovative concepts of geo propagation law and disparities between civilizations advanced by the author distinctively feature the book. On the other hand, however, it is anything but a theoretical work.
The author has incorporated her ideas into some seemingly discursive accounts, which shows that the book was actually written based on her chats with her pals or friends.
Susan Xu has always been holding an unemotional historical criticism toward the Chinese society and this time she has once again sent many of the audience into dumbfoundedness. As always, readers from the country have been polarized among themselves with advocates and revilers in coexistence.
