What It's All About:

China is the university from which you will never graduate. It is impossible to learn everything there is to know about this place with its 1.4 billion people, 2,500 years of recorded history, its multiple languages, cultures, religions, and cuisines. But it sure is worth a try. As one-fifth of all the people on this planet are Chinese, whether you like it or not you need to know something about what is ‘China’, perhaps the word in the English language with the broadest possible meaning.
This series explores a different aspect of China each week, everything
from history and culture to attempts at explaining the often times puzzling behavior seen every day on the streets of the Middle Kingdom. These articles will try to at least be interesting if nothing else and feedback, comments and suggestions are always welcome.
