My First Impression of China : Washingtonians' First Trips to the Middle Kingdom EPUB
by Wendy Liu
The year 2014 marks the thirty-fifth anniversary of the normalization of the diplomatic relations between the United States and China. Author Wendy Liu chose to honor that relationship by compiling thirty-five essays that detail some Americans first impressions of their trip to China.
My First Impression of China presents reflections from a group of prominent Washingtonians, including those who established the Washington-Sichuan friendship-state relationship and the Seattle-Chongqing sister-city relationship. Their first trips to China took place from 1973 to 2008, covering the time the two countries cautiously opened liaison offices in each others capitals to the time of the Beijing Olympics.
My First Impression of China provides insight into the changes in American attitudes toward China as well as changes in Chinas political, cultural, and technological landscape.
