Book Description Odyssey Publications,Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 3rd edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. China s drive into the 21st century has been fuelled by the relationship - and competition - between Beijing, considered by some observers to be the capital of capitals in China, and Shanghai, the nation s economic growth engine. The political and cultural history of China, since 1850, has in many ways been shaped by Beijing s exercise of policy over what was once a small shipping port and fishing centre. In little more than a century, Shanghai has cast off these nets and is rising to be the region s leading economic metropolis, a position it seems determined to hold, this time with Beijing s blessing. Beijing s majesty, well reflected in its cultural gems - the Forbidden City, The Temple of Heaven and the Ming Tombs - remains unfettered by the country s economic development. Observers and travellers alike will delight in seeing each city play out its colourful and dramatic role with the blessings of heaven and earth.Travellers to China must at some point visit both these dynamic cities. This vibrant third edition of Beijing Shanghai brings readers up-to-date on what s hot and what s cool in China s twin cities. Combining the latest information about restoration, entertainment, transportation and accommodation with historical writing by acclaimed authors who describe each city s high and low moments, Beijing Shanghai is the sophisticated guide to urban China that travellers have always wanted.This book is the third edition. It describes what s new and of note in the dynamic yin-yang cities. It provides a historical overview and practical information for the traveller. It covers Suzhou, Hangzhou the Water Towns. It includes a select list of Internet websites that covers both cities. It provides literary excerpts. It is recommended reading. Bookseller Inventory # ACD9789622177970
