"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.


This is one of a series of guides designed to tell the truth about other nations, using sweeping generalizations and observations as a base, detailing what to expect and how to cope with it. The guides try to explain why things are done the way they are and they try to allay the feelings of trepidation with which the xenophobe approaches new territory. This particular book looks at the Chinese.

About the Author:

J.C. Yang was born in England. He passed his first 20 years in total ignorance of China, and then spent the next 40 years trying to remedy the deficiency. He has worked and traveled extensively in China and now speaks more than one of its many dialects.
