Reviews - What do customers think about Knowing China?
To know China objectively.(From a young Chinese boy) Jun 5, 2004
First of all, I want to point out that there is indeed few to have this kind of provilige like experienced Chow to talk about China.
With Knowing China, you can see much of China by the historical and cultural perspective and many current controversial issues that China is now facing. Of course, Chow gives you convincible analysis and his specific view.
As a professor of Economics, Chow not only sees China from the historical trajectory, but also See china from future perspective, perhaps with his piercing rational expectation.
Particularly, I changed my view through it upon the birth control policy in China as a suffered boy born in late 1970's. Chow uses the theory of economic growth with simulation and wild interpretation of utility concludes that there is no nessesary to conduct that policy.
In the traditional Chinese culture, or in the point view of Confucius, since Chow was two (may be three) generation older than I so that I have to receive the his view unconditionally. But my acceptence after reading this is through convincible explanation but not enforcable way, I mean, it's very objectively written.
This book is very accesible (in contrast to Chow's professional works) and can be read widely. Even though this is an introduction for the non-Chinese readers, I still recommend it for Chinese, especially those who love China but not know how to.
