Passage Through China by Lee Khoon Choy

Book Description

This is no ordinary guidebook into one of the world's greatest civilisations. It will take you not through a single passage through China, but through the multiple passages of China, touching on the country's rich history, diverse cultures, politics and the remarkable stories of this stupendous nation's development in recent decades to be the China that we see today. Travel books and business guides on China are ten a penny. But this book offers something unique to readers in terms of depth and insight by bringing life and historical context to the different provinces of China and their ancient relics and landscapes. The author's background as Minister of State, ambassador, journalist, painter and businessman, culminates in this unique piece of work. From the 1970's as an active minister promoting trade and diplomatic relations with China, he had met with leaders like Mao Zedong, Zhou Enlai and many other prominent government officials, as well as some of China's finest artists, scientists and businessmen, all of whom are featured in this book. Whether you are a businessman, politician, academic, researcher, or simply looking for a deeper understanding of China, "Passage Through China" will illumine you.
