In addition to covering mainland China, there are also portraits of Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan, and the many Chinese people living overseas. The reader will discover interesting facts concerning the population, languages, and geography of China. Additionally, the rich heritage of China comes to life through descriptions of the history, religions, literature, art, calendar, festivals, medicine, education, and major monuments of the culture.
Finally, we enter into the rapidly changing China of the twenty-first century. The concept of what it means to be Chinese in a global scenario is constantly evolving. As the society undergoes transformation, so do Chinese interactions with the outside world, influencing the future of this wonderfully rich culture.
