China’s top education thought leader provides a thorough examination of the state of China’s education system—what’s working, what’s not, and what’s to be done Observations on the Education of China is a guide to the current status of education and educational thought in China, based on the author's visits to nearly 100 schools in more than 20 provinces throughout the country. Zhu contends that due to a wide diversity of educational methods throughout the nation, policy must be tailored to the unique situation of each particular area. He reveals the difficulties faced by headmasters, teachers, and officers, who spend nearly their whole lives on practical teaching, and the amazing creativity they use to overcome these issues and find solutions to a number of problems. Zhu Yongxin (Beijing, China) is a member of National People's Congress Standing Committee, vice chairman of Association for Promoting Democracy (CAPD), and vice president of Chinese Society of Education (CSE). He also works as a professor and PhD supervisor in Suzhou University.

From industrial complex to international art district, Beijing 798 has become a symbol of urban change in China. This book canvases the district's insiders - architects, artists, curators, critics, galleryists, publishers, art professionals and non-profit workers, among others - to explore many of the issues facing the art district (and China as a whole) today: development plans, artistic freedoms, commercial controls, globalization, tradition, as well as modes of artistic experimentation and contemporary production. Against the backdrop of globalization and social change, the broad and penetrating discussion that unfolds in this book's texts and interviews offer critical insight and analysis into many of the issues that the district now faces and, in doing so, afford the reader glimpses into the possible futures of art, architecture and society in China.

THE aphorism, "As a man thinketh in his heart so is he," not only embraces the whole of a man's being, but is so comprehensive as to reach out to every condition and circumstance of his life. A man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of all his thoughts.

“The most important task of education is to teach children to be kind, to have a dream, and to possess the ability to learn.” --Zhu Yongxin One of today’s leading education thinkers, Zhu Yongxin possesses a rare clarity about the purpose of education. Dialogues on the New Education is a collection of interviews with Professor Zhu on a wide array of important education issues. These are truly dialogues. The interviewers are either highly qualified journalists or education experts. The result is more dynamic and informative than anything a typical question/answer format could provide. Dialogues on the New Education provides a level of insight into the subject you will find nowhere else. The 55 interviews in this book cover such topics as: The Educational Ideals of an Official and Scholar Being a Teacher as a Life-Long Identity The Foundational Ideas of the New Education Experiment Moral Education During Times of Social Transition The Importance of Education Research Promoting Humanism and a Reading-Focused Society The Critical Role of Parents in a Child’s Education Why Education Policymakers Should Listen to the Public “Education should cultivate not only innovative talents and scientists but also applied skilled workers,” Yongxin writes. “But what’s more critical is to turn our students into qualified citizens.”

Issues In Bilingualism And Biculturalism

Issues in Bilingualism and Biculturalism describes the nature and extent of code-mixing in Hong Kong in the 1990s. It is mainly based on written data obtained from the local Chinese press collected systematically over a period of two years since late 1992. While previous studies on code-mixing between Cantonese and English in Hong Kong tend to emphasize sociolinguistic motivations, this book presents evidence that much of the code-mixing behaviour, be it in print or in speech, may be traced back to linguistic motivations at work resulting from sustained contact between Cantonese, modern standard Chinese and increasingly, English. This study further argues that, largely as a correlate of biculturalism, code-mixing - which is indicative of linguistic convergence in the mind of the average Hong Kong bilingual - is simply unstoppable, given that the norms prescribed for the written standard varieties of Chinese and English deviate considerably from those of the vernacular Cantonese.

Journalist Michael Meyer has spent his adult life in China, first in a small village as a Peace Corps volunteer, the last decade in Beijing--where he has witnessed the extraordinary transformation the country has experienced in that time. For the past two years he has been completely immersed in the ancient city, living on one of its famed hutong in a century-old courtyard home he shares with several families, teaching English at a local elementary school--while all around him "progress" closes in as the neighborhood is methodically destroyed to make way for high-rise buildings, shopping malls, and other symbols of modern, urban life. The city, he shows, has been demolished many times before; however, he writes, "the epitaph for Beijing will read: born 1280, died 2008...what emperors, warlords, Japanese invaders, and Communist planners couldn't eradicate, the market economy can." The Last Days of Old Beijing tells the story of this historic city from the inside out-through the eyes of those whose lives are in the balance: the Widow who takes care of Meyer; his students and fellow teachers, the first-ever description of what goes on in a Chinese public school; the local historian who rallies against the government. The tension of preservation vs. modernization--the question of what, in an ancient civilization, counts as heritage, and what happens when a billion people want to live the way Americans do--suffuse Meyer's story.
