James R. Lilley ☆ 6 review characters ✓ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ☆ James R. Lilley free read China Hands: Nine Decades Of Adventure, Espionage, And Diplomacy In Asia 106 James Lilley's life and family have been entwined with China's fate since his father moved to the country to work for Standard Oil in 1916 Lilley spent much of his childhood in China and after a Yale professor took him aside and suggested a career in intelligence it became clear that he would spend his adult life returning to China again and again Lilley served for twenty five years in the CIA in Laos Tokyo Hon. China Hands by James Lilley is a surprisingly poorly written book filled with disingenuous recollections and littered with propagandist sleights against the US Democratic Party and State Department The prose is often times sloppy juvenile and very cliched It is completely uninspired writing I would love to show example after example but it is so awful that I dont want to look at it any or spend any time thinking about itJames Lilley comes across as a sort of genial half wit with just a cursory knowledge of the Chinese language and a philistinic attitude toward Chinese culture This was a stunning disappointment and freuently an angering book I feel that he was an embarrassment to the US diplomatic corps and the nation It was also a boring book There was no interesting cloak and dagger stuff or even behind the scenes intelligence revelations just one little vapid what I did on my Summer vaction report after another This book is a total waste of time for anyone except the most masochistic of scholars with some need of research in the field
