Summary
Framed by ten phrases common in the Chinese vernacular??people, ? ?leader, ? ?reading, ? ?writing, ? ?Lu Xun? (one of the most influential Chinese writers of the twentieth century), ?disparity, ? ?revolution, ? ?grassroots, ? ?copycat, ? and ?bamboozle??China in Ten Words reveals as never before the world?s most populous yet oft-misunderstood nation. In ?Disparity, ? for example, Yu Hua illustrates the mind-boggling economic gaps that separate citizens of the country. In ?Copycat, ? he depicts the escalating trend of piracy and imitation as a creative new form of revolutionary action. And in ?Bamboozle, ? he describes the increasingly brazen practices of trickery, fraud, and chicanery that are, he suggests, becoming a way of life at every level of society.Characterized by Yu Hua?s trademark wit, insight, and courage, China in Ten Words is a refreshingly candid vision of the ?Chinese miracle? and all its consequences, from the singularly invaluable perspective of a writer living in China today
