“It is a big country with a large population, with endless villages and towns, each in close proximity to the next……Many countries yearn for the chance to visit China. Many countries consume mainly wheat or rice, and China grows both in large amounts.”

——400 years ago, Alvaro Semedo, a Portuguese missionary who came to China, described China in his book 1645 History of China.


“First, the Chinese society has families, instead of individuals, government or churches, as its basic unit……In China, there will never be anarchy due to a lack of importance being attached to the law in mind; Chinese society is closely united under Confucianism.”
——30 years ago, the famous American Sinologist, John King Fairbank said in his book China: Tradition and Transformation


“Adoption of the rule of law, of commitment to competition, of widespread use of English, of foreign education, and of many foreign laws and institutions are not just updating Chinese institutions but transforming Chinese civilization... It is hard to overstate the social adjustment Chinese are experiencing. But because China has been willing to accept such adjustments, no large country in human history has ever experienced such rapid improvements in living standards and working conditions.”
— 3 years ago, William Overholt, Director of the Center for Asia Pacific Policy at the RAND Corporation, made the comment in his article China and Globalization on the changes in China. 


With an over 5,000-year-old civilization, China has developed a unique culture which has greatly enriched world civilization. This makes China a country worthy of being understood.
China is not difficult to understand. Currently the country is going full steam ahead to open its door to the outside world and learn from others. China is dedicated to peaceful endeavors, and is sincere in dealing with others. With the deepening of the reform and opening-up, and with more efforts made to become deeply involved in economic globalization, China becomes more closely connected with the rest of the world. Under this situation, getting to know more about China has become the order of the day.

This ebook is created with the expectation of being of some help in this regard. 

Together with the Publisher, China Intercontinental Press, Feetan hope readers will get to know more and love China.
