China's Transformations: The Stories Beyond the Headlines

China's Transformations: The Stories Beyond the Headlines Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This successor volume to China beyond the Headlines takes the reader even farther beyond the front stage to explore a China few Westerners have seen. Seeking to bridge the gap between what specialists understand and the general public believes, the contributors challenge readers to move past the usual images of China presented by the media and to think about shared problems. In an entirely new set of essays, they explore such critical issues as environmental degradation, nationalism, unemployment, film and literature, news reporting, the Internet, sex tourism, and the costs of the economic boom to vividly portray the complexity of life in contemporary China and how surprisingly often it speaks to the American experience.

Book News Annotation:

In this update of China beyond the Headlines (2000), Jensen (East Asian languages and literatures, U. of Notre Dame) and Weston (history, U. of Colorado at Boulder) stress the need for Americans to learn more about its giant trading partner. Fourteen contributions examine political, tourism development, environmental, health, and cultural aspects of the New China, including its economic, Internet, and sexual revolutions. The book includes a chronology (from the 1949 founding of the People's Republic of China to 2012, projected completion date of its national space station); maps; and photos.
