"A collection of essays written for the Atlantic Monthly between 2006-08. The advantage of the Fallows book is that the essays—postcards—offer snap shots of his impression of China as an outsider, a foreigner. He specifically thematizes the myriad difficulties inherent in attempting to cross borders: among those difficulties are language, history, and the ethical question of "why." Indeed, what is at stake in "knowing the other?" I [am] hoping that we might try to get Fallows to come to campus for a talk."
