Bonding - A conclusion
Martin Jacques wrote When China Rules the World in 2009. His analysis ignores the potential dangers in Chinese politics. But his observation that the western world must learn to understand how Chinese think, those rules of the cultural road that are foreign to us, is quite correct.
