Lessons from China: America in the Hearts and Minds of the World's Most Important Rising Generation
In Lessons from China, Fulbright Scholar and American Studies Professor Amy Werbel paints a vivid portrait of China's rising generation of university students. Seeing Frederick Douglass, Andrew Carnegie, the Vietnam War, Malcolm X, Timothy Leary, and Betty Friedan through their eyes reveals as much about China's present realities as it does about America's past. Perhaps most importantly, Chinese students' responses to questions about censorship, revolution, war, and feminism are good indicators that this generation is unlike any that has come before. Educated, eyes opened, and facing their future with optimism and great expectations, China's post-Cultural Revolution youth promise to change their country forever. Lessons from China is a provocative look at how that is happening today.
