Teach Yourself: Chinese Language, Life and Culture

by Kenneth Wilkinson

If you’ve heard of the book ‘The 10 Day MBA’, then this is the 10 day MA in Chinese Studies. The book’s strength lies in its breadth, a really comprehensive, wide ranging and understanding look at the Chinese and their culture.

It’s difficult to write about culture and keep it interesting, even more so when dealing with a country as diverse and complex as China. Kenneth Wilkinson’s ‘World Cultures’, China not only manages to keep the reader interested, it’s also an informative, accurate introduction to China and Chineseness. Covering everything from the Yellow Emperor to CCP censorship via art, language, literature, tai chi, religion, cinema and sex, he gets right to the heart of all the issues in a way which is both intellectually rigorous, but also very easy to understand.

Read a few pages in your spare time for a week or so and you’ll soon find yourself pontificating on subjects you never even knew you knew about.

The same book has also been published as Teach Yourself: World Cultures: China
