The Thunder from the Silent Zone by Paul Monk
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Challenging conventional wisdom about China and its relationship to the rest of the world, this study offers a sophisticated critique of Samuel Huntington's influential "clash of civilizations" hypothesis. Arguing that China shows a significant capacity for economic and social change, as well as a growing tolerance for dissent, the book urges Westerners to stop thinking of this emerging superpower as an isolated and repressive giant and to encourage greater openness. Offering a radical rethinking of China's international role, including independence for Taiwan, the book discusses many aspects of everyday Chinese life, including politics, economics, literature, music, and film.
