China Road by tucsonmike on 16 July 2007 4:05am
 
This is by NPR correspondent Rob Gifford, a British national who is now NPR's London Bureau chief.

He studied in China and just wrote this book China Road. It was reviewed in the Economist.

He travels China Route 312, which goes from Shanghai to the Kazakh border at Khorgos. You see, glittering Shanghai, then poor rural China, then the desert and a very different Central Asia.

It is repetitious in places, but otherwise, the best book about China I have ever read. It sums up why China is the way it is and where it may be heading.

I like Chinese food, the waiters never are rude.

I love Chinese food too! Especially special fried rice, beef with black bean sauce and prawn crackers. Mmmmmm!
