China-Ocidente: percepções

Interessante esta crónica de Manfred Elfstrom:

"While today''s portrayal of China is an improvement over the naive (and often condescending) coverage of the past, Western journalists must begin to move beyond the shock value of recent turmoil and present a truly diverse country and, especially, a diverse Chinese history to their audience. What does it mean when workers on strike carry portraits of Mao Zedong? Which era''s slogans are used in peasant land disputes? What are the origins of today''s hukou system of household registration? These are details, but they reveal an event''s sources, goals and possible results".

In "Can Westerners see China as they see themselves", CEG.
