It's time we got to know a little more about the Chinese. Did you
know they don't eat soup, they drink it? That their surnames come
before their first names? That their good sense is to be found not
in their heads but in their hearts? Or that white is their colour
of mourning? This guide to avoiding the numerous pitfalls of
Chinese etiquette is both amusing and informative. The writer and
journalist Kai Strittmatter lived and worked in China for ten
years. This amusing, affectionate and perceptive book provides a
fascinating guide to this lively, sociable and friendly people and
their complex and often contradictory society. As the author says:
'Be prepared for everything when you come to Beijing. It really is
unbelievable what can happen here'. The new material in this
edition takes a critical look at the challenges posed by this, the
next global superpower.
