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
