About this title

Synopsis:

China is a vast country! This book series is designed for families and educators who want to go beyond broad generalizations about China, and explore the wide variety of life and culture in each of China's provinces and municipalities. Each hardbound book in this series will focus on one province or municipality, and is written from the perspective of a young person (high school or college age) traveling in that province for the summer. In addition to being packed with information on such topics as history, literature, architecture, foods, famous people, things to see and do, and geography, the books are written in a fun and engaging style, with full-color photos and illustrations on each page.

from the Introduction:For the vast majority of Westerners, China has remained a mystery that is centuries old. It is a country that is both quick to change, yet slow to relinquish its traditional culture and values. Every year China continues to attract visitors from all over the world. Some come to crack the riddle of Chinese culture; some are sent on business ventures; still others make the trip for the pure excitement of the place. And there are those who fall in love with the country and decide to take up a life there.

Modern China rests on the fulcrum between fantasy and reality. The growing interest in China, especially among the younger generation, has accelerated to form a China Wave...

With the growing fascination with China's past, present, and future, visitors are exploring every facet of her mosaic of indignenous cultures, languages and customs. Each visitor leaves with his/her own impression of the country, leaving the riddle intact. They return home with an open invitation to try China again and discover anew as China changes.

The Shanghai edition of the Explore-A-Province Series takes the reader on a journey through China's most cosmopolitan city, revealing a colorful history, a landscape marked by ultra-modern skyscrapers and old world architecture, and a local spirit imbued with unending optimism. This book explores Shanghai's culturally diverse population, and covers major historical events such as the Opium Wars and the fall of the Qing Dynasty.
