From Mao to McDonalds: a nation transformed.

If you go to the Wangfujing shopping centre in Beijing then you will find it bustling with shoppers and lines with expensive stores.

Secondly, it looks at Chinese students in more detail. Why are they in your schools and universities? Where in China do they come from and what difference does that make? What has changed in their attitude to study? What is their lifestyle likely to be like? What will they think of you?

Thirdly, it looks at how best to befriend Chinese people and make them welcome in your country and Fourthly, how best to engage them in discussion (including a valuable FAQ section with answers and further resources to go to) and Fifthly, how to speak on spiritual topics.

There is also an appendix with suggested further reading.

If you meet Chinese people at work, socially or in education you will find this an invaluable tool. It is also useful for those travelling to China for work or leisure.
