Ken Hom and Ching-He Huang have transformed the way we cook and eat Chinese food. In this exciting new cookbook and TV series, they journey through China on a culinary and cultural odyssey to find the old, the new and the unexpected. China's emergence as one of the world's most influential cultures has ignited our interest in this enigmatic country, but Ken and Ching also have their own quests to explore. They arrive in Beijing to explore the influences of the West on traditional Imperial cuisine and talk to cutting-edge chefs about their take on Peking Duck. They cook with local families, en route to discover the influence of Buddhism on vegetarian food and whether the Chinese did actually invent tortellini in remote Kashgar before travelling to Sichuan Province, China's gastronomic capital. But this is more than a culinary journey, this is a homecoming for Ken and Ching, and they make their own pilgrimages to Guangdong and Fujian to discover their personal and culinary roots. Ching admires Ken's experience and knowledge, while Ken respects Ching's modern influences. Together they bring a unique and authoritative perspective on Chinese food that will surprise and inform.

The Specter of Global China

Politics, Labor, and Foreign Investment in Africa

Author: Ching Kwan Lee

Publisher: University of Chicago Press

ISBN: 022634097X

Category: Social Science

Page: 256

China has recently emerged as one of Africa’s top business partners, aggressively pursuing its raw materials and establishing a mighty presence in the continent’s booming construction market. Among major foreign investors in Africa, China has stirred the most fear, hope, and controversy. For many, the specter of a Chinese neocolonial scramble is looming, while for others China is Africa’s best chance at economic renewal. Yet, global debates about China in Africa have been based more on rhetoric than on empirical evidence. Ching Kwan Lee’s The Specter of Global China is the first comparative ethnographic study that addresses the critical question: Is Chinese capital a different kind of capital? Offering the clearest look yet at China’s state-driven investment in Africa, this book is rooted in six years of extensive fieldwork in copper mines and construction sites in Zambia, Africa’s copper giant. Lee shadowed Chinese, Indian, and South African managers in underground mines, interviewed Zambian miners and construction workers, and worked with Zambian officials. Distinguishing carefully between Chinese state capital and global private capital in terms of their business objectives, labor practices, managerial ethos, and political engagement with the Zambian state and society, she concludes that Chinese state investment presents unique potential and perils for African development. The Specter of Global China will be a must-read for anyone interested in the future of China, Africa, and capitalism worldwide.

American Furies

Crime, Punishment, and Vengeance in the Age of Mass Imprisonment

Category: Social Science

How vengeance has replaced rehabilitation in our prisons--and its terrible costs In this dramatic expose of U.S. penitentiaries and the communities around them, Sasha Abramsky finds that prisons have dumped their age-old goal of rehabilitation, often for political reasons. The new "ideal," unknown to most Americans, is a punitive mandate marked by a drive toward vengeance. Surveying this state of affairs-life sentences for nonviolent crimes, appalling conditions, the growth of private prisons, the treatment of juveniles--Abramsky asks: Does the vengeful impulse ennoble our culture or demean it? What can become of people who are quarantined for years in a violent subculture? California's Three Strikes law typifies the politics that exploit the grief of victims' families and our fears of violent crime. Brilliantly researched and compellingly told, American Furies shows that the ethos of "lock 'em up and throw away the key" has enormous social costs. Quotes "Timely and important. Instead of preaching democracy to the world, the United States should start practicing it at home."-Eric Schlosser "The war on drugs, the disenfranchisement of convicted felons, a series of dodgy electoral Republican victories… someone had to connect the dots, and Sasha Abramsky has done so with passion, precision, and artistry." -Barbara Ehrenreich "This is by far the most intelligent and haunting indictment of the American prison system that I have ever read. Sasha Abramsky has shone an incandescent lamp on a shadowy underground universe that holds and in all too many cases brutalizes the lives of more than two million Americans. He should be commended for doing so, and his book made required reading for every legislator in the land, bar none."-Simon Winchester, author of A Crack in the Edge of the World and The Professor and the Madman
