The Red Dragon Turns to Gold : Travels in China during the Fiftieth Anniversary of the People's Republic
Over a billion Chinese are inventing a bridge between communism and capitalism, between their 1949 revolution and the digital age. Wearing business attire and talking on cell phones, they ride bicycles from small apartments to mammoth, new office buildings. They might blow their noses into the ashtray in the hotel lobby, but they would never wear their shoes into your home. Theirs has been the fastest growing economy in the world, and their military might will grow with their financial clout; yet, nonasian Americans know very little about the Chinese.
Find out what they Chinese think about raising children or the struggle over Taiwan, how they survive their crowded conditions, what can be learned about racism or relationships from spending ninety days with one's spouse in China.
