Based on the story of Water Margin, this book describes the “gangster’s logic”--the way in which the members of criminal syndicate get along with others and the way that governors manage state affairs. Through the author’s description, we can learn the psychology of common people in turbulent days and find out what has caused the transformation of traditional Chinese society from unity to disorder. To some degree, the book could be considered as Chinese House of cards.
