The Other Side of the Story

Stan Abram's China Heresay blog led me to this James Fallows' article for, recounting his personal experience in China with middle school girls, who he describes as "charming" and "open-spirited."

A reminder that despite its unfortunate portrayal as a looming military and economic threat, China is doing its best to address domestic concerns, be it managing its massive and aging population, equally distributing wealth between cosmopolitan and rural populations, or staying current in this information age.
