Chinese Culture, Western Culture: How Cross-Cultural Views of History, Philosophy and Human Relationships Will Change Modern Global Society Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

China is emerging front and center on the global economic stage as a new member of the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the World Health Organization (WHO). Beijing will host the 2008 Summer Olympics and Shanghai will host Expo 2010. Moreover, China is becoming a major trading nation. Is Western culture ready to respect a country known primarily for population control and communism?

Chinese Culture, Western Culture asserts that as these events unfold, the Western world will naturally want to know more about China. People will have to filter through an excessive supply of information, and in some cases, misinformation, to understand a culture that has traditionally held so little of the Western world's attention.

A primer that explores the complementary aspects of Chinese and Western cultures, this book demonstrates how we can learn from both in order to establish a dynamic balance in this new era of globalization and rapid technological advancement. By discovering new ways of thinking, we can transform how we do business, how we treat our environment, and how we interact with others as we face future challenges.
