"China is making greater strides toward the center of the global stage. Unfortunately, misunderstandings are compounding, largely because of misrepresentations, particularly in Western media.… China has such a unique history, culture, and even geography, that I think it's difficult for many people outside the country to understand," Nilsson says.

"Many Western readers said that they gained a more balanced and positive understanding of China after reading my book. Many Chinese readers also said they achieved a deeper understanding of their own country. This is what I'm happiest about," he says.

"There's an extraordinary value in helping the world better understand China."A
