China wakes : the struggle for the soul of a rising power by Nicholas D Kristof ( Book )

"With the Chinese economy (the world's third largest) on a trajectory to overtake Japan and the United States in the coming decades, Kristof and WuDunn describe a spectacular economic boom that has enabled a twenty-three-year old to start his own airline or a manual laborer to become a millionaire furniture manufacturer. But they also reveal the chilling paradox lurking beneath these rags-to-riches stories: despite the stock markets and the cellular telephones, China has retained its totalitarian infrastructure, including the notorious "shackleboards" to which dissidents are strapped and brutally tortured. And with the world's largest army, the People's Republic continues to embody a tremendous challenge to the stability of the Pacific Rim." "Never before has China been portrayed so compellingly or with such feeling. As this great nation stands poised to fulfill Napoleon's prediction, China Wakes is an indispensable guide to the rumblings ahead."--BOOK JACKET

Reporter ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Follows New York Times op-ed columnist Nicholas Kristof as he seeks to bring the plight of the Congo to a seemingly deaf western world. Using the findings of psychological studies as his guide, Kristof seeks to find that single person, that single heart-wrenching story he can use as a focus for his columns, and thus touch well-off and uninvolved western readers. Along with highlighting the suffering and death among Congolese refugees fleeing the ongoing ruthless conflict between several factions and warlords, the film questions humanitarian activism itself--how can those who care about humanitarian needs convince others to care about them as well, and how can they themselves keep from becoming jaded and unflappable?

An interview between Aaron Brown and Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof concludes the program."--Films Media Group website
