Meanwhile Don't Push and Squeeze is an account of a year in China written with cinematic immediacy. Surrounded by startling contradictions, Robert Berold finds ways to capture the voices of ordinary people, embarks on publishing ventures, follows the tracks of ancient writers and graphically depicts a vast country's galloping economy. This vivid and sometimes very funny book is enriched by the writings of Berold's enthusiastic students and those of his articulate companion.
