21st Century China

Publisher: Cambridge Scholars Publishing Release date: 2009-10-02

Description

Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd famously said that China issues are part of 21st century Australia's 'very life-blood'. This brings short-term challenges to the Australia-China relationship, from Chinese investments in our resources to visits to Australia by expatriate regional political and religious leaders, labelled 'splittists' or 'terrorists' by the Chinese government. Our long-term relationship includes robust scholarship on China as an emerging superpower. In this book, leading Australian academics comment on the arts, law, politics and society in China today. The book opens with Geremie Barme's essay on re-orienting Beijing city for the Olympics and closes with restaurateur Kylie Kwong's reminiscences-and recipes-from a Chinese childhood in Sydney's suburbs. Readers will disover a rich engagement with China in the twelve chapters of this volume, ranging from Confucianism to 'green' Australian-Chinese cuisine.
