Coping With China by Richard King, Sandra Schatzky



China has the longest continuous civilization in the world, with philosophical, artistic and literary traditions stretching back well over 2000 years. But it is also a nation which is developing rapidly and drawing eagerly from the economic and cultural resources of the West. The China of the Great Wall is also home to the world's largest Kentucky Fried Chicken franchise. More open to the outside world than ever before, China still holds for many visitors the allure that has drawn Western travellers since Marco Polo. "Coping with China" offers practical insights into the country and its people to those who are visiting China, whether as tourists, on business or students. The book is illustrated throughout and contains useful addresses and maps. It also provides readers with the basics of survival Chinese. "Coping with China" will be a valuable companion to your discovery of a fascinating, complex and rapidly changing society.
