Editorial Reviews

Review

"Arkush and Lee . . . have organized the collection thematically and chronologically which helps to highlight changing views of the United States and to link such changes to developments in China."--Lucy Salyer, "Journal of American History

From the Inside Flap

"At last we have a wonderful book which makes us privy to these Chinese images of the West and lets us see how they were formed and how they changed over the last century and a half."—Orville Schell, author of Discos and Democracy

By A Customer on April 18, 2000
This is a collection of essays about Chinese impressions of America over the last 150 years. We know what Americans thought of the Chinese when they first arrived -- this is a rare opportunity to learn what the Chinese thought of Americans. Topics include helpful suggestions concerning American ettiquite, essays on American women, black Americans, and the various problems in America (too much traffic, excessive consumption, etc.). This book will allow the American reader to examine his/her own society from a different perspective.

All of the excepts are very easy to read and none are very long. It is really interesting to see American culture from the view of foreign residents/visitors. None of the accounts are REALLY from the present I think the most recent one is like the 80's?
