"What I like most in Maier's giant work is the spine of this saga, the all-important record of influence the great soldier-statesman-historian's life exerted on the future American president." -- Chris Matthews, host of MSNBC's Hardball, review in Chartwell Bulletin, The Churchill Centre

Translated by Admirer, Dr. Spock Is A Hit in China; Old Ben's Big in Beijing


Benjamin Spock not only influenced generations of American parents and their children. Now, a decade after his death, Spock's work is influencing China. As the Wall Street Journal reports, "A child-rearing book that has been a runaway success in China has this piece of advice: Listen to your child. That may not sound like revolutionary parenting advice, but as Yin Jianli, the book’s author has found, it has struck a chord with many Chinese parents as just that."

As the story goes on to say:
Books such as “Emile” by Rousseau of France and “Baby and Child Care” by American pediatrician Benjamin Spock have greatly shaped Yin’s view toward parenting, she said. “From these good books one can learn how kids think, and the meaning of equality and respect,” she said.
