And His Letters Grew Colder uI look at China s meteoric rise in the past four decades with contradictory emotions I admire the way they execute massive infrastructural projects like highways bridges and high speed rail at a rapid pace I admire the way they have risen to the No2 position in the world in just four decades I have always wondered how they produce goods at such low prices that even poorer Asian countries cannot compete with them On the other hand I fear their military buildp and attempts to hegemonize in the Indo Pacific region I feel skepticism at their GDP growth numbers and antagonism at the denial of democracy to their citizens I am intrigued and skeptical about how advanced China is in the areas of Artificial Intelligence Emasculating Her Husband uantum Computing and self driving cars I am doubtful whether they have overcome the pitfalls inherent in the long term continuity of authoritarian regimesOver the years I have read several books by Western academics other China watchers and journalists to get a grasp of what the composite picture concerning China is I have had satisfying answers toestions like the low price at which China manufactures goods This book by Evan Osnos is an essential contribution in advancing our knowledge of contemporary China Osnos lived for eight years between 2005 and 2013 in China as a journalist and China watcher He contributed many essays during that time to the New Yorker on China He speaks Mandarin and is a dispassionate observer of China being neither starry eyed about it nor a trenchantly hostile critic I found some answers to many of my Three Short Ballbusting Stories uestions in this bookWestern academics talk much about the wisdom of the Chinese leadership in history They point out how it has taken a long range view of variousestions regarding its security development and relationships with its neighborhood and the world The approach is said to be one of Confucian sagacity and working on a timeline that is proportionate to China s long history In other words the Chinese are Honeys Natural Feeding Handbook for Dogs unhurried and always bide their time and strike when the time is ripe Other writers project a picture of an integrated China where the Party and the people are moving together towards the country s vision of becoming the pre eminent power that China once was in history The BRI Belt and Road initiative and the Maritime Silk Road are notable examples of this vision Unlike the USSR the Communist Party of China is believed to have successfully diluted the demand for freedom from its citizens and established total control over them through the fruits of material advancement Authors like Niall Ferguson and Kishore Mehbubani believe that China is the future Osnos book stands in contrast to the views mentioned above He presents his analysis in three sections titled Fortune Truth and Faith In Fortune we get to learn about the ambitions and anxieties that drive the Chinese in the era of economic transformation In Truth we learn in an Orwellian fashion how lies about the objective Chinese reality and constraints on freedom proliferate in every walk of life and how the Chinese navigate them in the era of the internet Finally in Faith we learn about how the Chinese people are skeptical and dismissive of the Party s propaganda They are on aest to believe in something other than what the Party dishes out to them as reality The book explores all these aspects through a collection of anecdotal accounts of various people whom Osnos meets and keeps in touch over the eight years he lived in China We meet a broad cross section of people There is Lin YiFu who was a Taiwanese military officer in 1979 He chose to swim the Taiwan straits to defect to China because that is where he saw the future to be He becomes the chief economist in the World Bank and remains a firm believer in the Chinese model of capitalism nder the leadership of the Party Then we have the dissident artist Ai Weiwei the human rights lawyer Chen Guangcheng and the Nobel Laureate dissident literary critic Liu Xiaobo The politically influential journalist cum publisher Hu Shuli and the blogger Han Han are others who make their presence We meet Tang Jie a Chinese nationalist who argues that the Chinese have a good life without freedom So why should they fight the state for democracy and spoil itI wouldn t go into the details of these interactions and experiences Instead I would like to paraphrase the conclusions Osnos arrives at as a result of these exchangesIn the section on Fortune Osnos says that There Is A Desperate Rush is a desperate rush the Chinese to get wealthy The average Chinese feel that one has to elbow one s way on to everything otherwise one will miss out Since people do not have enough information on the strengths and weaknesses of the politics and the economy there is the anxiety to capitalize on the good times before the bad times make

THEIR ENTRY THE AUTHOR FEELS THAT 
entry The author feels that today is comparable to the US during the Gilded Age Just like it was in the US in the late 19th century corruption lack of the rule of law and weakness in the face of corporate monopolies are pervasive Strikes and Demonstrations raged across the US in the 1870s and 80s and the state met them with force The same is true in China today concerning any form of protest However Osnos makes a alification regarding corruption He says that the corruption in China in this era is monumental According to him the high speed rail project was the single biggest financial scandal not just in China but in the whole world Between 1990 and 2011 eighteen thousand corrupt officials have fled the country with at least 120 billion according to the Central bank of China Even the military is riddled with patronage Commanders receive strings of payments from a pyramid of loyal officers below them The ex Prime Minister Wen Jiabao s family is said to have amassed assets worth 27 billion during the time he was in office Public officials routinely take bribes to dole out jobs that they controlThe section on Truth throws much light on the Chinese view of the world outside and their aspirations and the est for freedom The Chinese attitude to the West is complicated There is a fierce curiosity about the world but it is tempered by a defensive pride of their place in it They look at the West with a mixture of pity envy victimhood and resentment Pity for the barbarians envy for their strength and resentment and the sense of victimhood for their incursions into China They feel some sense of superiority due to the belief that they are lot hard working and goal oriented than Westerners At the same time they are also filled with doubts and misgivings Just as American mothers wonder whether they should be tiger mothers and push their children harder the CHINESE ARE WONDERING IF THEY SHOULD are wondering if they should about being creative in their education system like the AmericansUnlike what is written in much of the Western media China has a creative class of artists bloggers journalists and students who resist the conformity that is imposed on them by the Party and the State The intersection of wealth and authoritarianism poses a problem for the new Chinese creative class The struggles and resistance of the artist Ai Wei Wei and the Nobel Laureate Liu Xiaobo are well known in the West They spoke in a vernacular that mixed irony imagination and rage They tried to see how far an individual s power can sustain in China As we know the state came down firmly on them and incarcerated them They put Liu on trial where he aesthetically declared I hope I will be the last victim in China s long record of treating words as crimes In any case there is no doubt that the internet has stirred a hunger for a new kind of critical voice a rebirth of irony a search for community and the courage to complain For example the computer science professor Fang Binxing is known as the architect of the Great Firewall which tramples the access of the Chinese people to the open internet When he lectured at Wuhan University in 2011 angry students threw shoes at him in protest When the teachers tried to detain the shoe thrower fellow students defied them and protected the shoe thrower The students argued that there is no From abroad we often see China as a caricature a nation of pragmatic plutocrats and ruthlessly dedicated students destined to rule the global economy or an addled Goliath riddled with corruption and on the edge of stagnation What we don't see is how both powerful and ordinary people are remaking their lives as their country dramatically changes As the Beijing correspondent for The New Yorker Evan Osnos was on the ground in China for years witness to profo. ,
Ay for them to debate Fang Binxing because of the mismatch in their powers Hence throwing shoes was the only way out The author says that divining how far an individual can go in Chinese creative life is akin to carving a line in the sand at low tide in the dark The political terrain keeps shifting all the timeIn the section on Faith Osnos makes keen observations on how the Communist Party has learned to deal with control and manipulation in the internet era The Chinese leadership observed how the Arab Springs and the Soviet collapse originated and evolved They drew the lesson that protests which go nchecked lead to open revolt The Politburo conseuently decided on the approach of Five No s no opposition parties no alternative principles no separation of powers no federal system and no full scale privatization Curiously they also adopted an American model of doing propaganda Learning from Walter Lippmann they magnify emotion while A Collection of Previously Banned Victorian Erotica, DELUXE EDITION undermining critical thought The idea is that good PR can create a group mind and manufacture consent for the ruling elite The father of American PR Harold Lasswell said in 1927 if the masses will be free of chains of iron they must accept its chains of silver Unlike the USSR communist China s propaganda gospel follows such American innovationsOn the internet the Party controls online dissent and criticism by these of what it calls The Obvious ushers of public opinion The Party has manyshers of public opinion deployed on the net masuerading as ordinary sers They do not try to extinguish debate but endeavor to steer it away harmlessly Their task is to influence public opinion and stabilize netizens emotions As an example if people criticize the Party on rising gas prices the shers will lob a grenade of a post like if you are too poor to drive then it serves you right This makes the public turn the debate towards attacking the Red Shines The Sun usher The topic gradually moves from gas prices to thesher s comments Netizens emotions are diverted and stabilized Mission accomplished This approach must ring a bell in most of Generation us I have seen similar methods by the current right wing government in India as well One could see that even the Trump campaignsed such approaches in diverting attention away from Trump s refusal to release his tax returns However in spite of all these seeming successes on establishing control over public opinion the Communist Party of China is nervous and A World Without Clothes unsure deep down For the first time in history Osnos says China is spending on domestic security than on foreign defense They invest money on surveilling and policing its citizens than on external threatsWhen I finished the book the impression I had was that Communist China is on shaky legs at its core The Party elite is juggling many ballsp in the air and one of them is sure to drop eventually When that happens the authoritarian state as no other plan but to put down the resulting protests violently Even in the Sex, Purity, and the Longings of a Girls Heart unlikely event that no ball drops ever improving living standards will demand freedom and individual expression This will challenge the Party to loosen its control In such an event as well the Party has no plan other than to put down the demands Many scholars have said this over the past couple of decades The Chinese nationalists have responded that these predictions have not come true and that China is going from strength to strength However I would read Evan Osnos book as saying that it is an illusion and that Communist China also will meet the same fate that has befallen all authoritarian regimes in history This is the best book I ve read so far on China It helps younderstand the odd dichotomy of big government and free market capitalism that exists there Something that the vast majority of westerns including myself fail to really Pirate Gold understand That is not a simple topic to summarize but the author presented it not as a rigid historical background but as a mix of stories biographies of real fascinating people in China Combining many of the articles the author has written for the New Yorker on ChinaIt explains not only how the government got to it s current state but also why it s not going away anytime soon The book demonstrated that a surprising amount of people in China are still embracing it seeing it as necessary and helpful to their advancement in the world And are critical and resistant to the flawed western democracies they see on TVThe author expertly avoided bias from his presentation of the situation and I should note it is hardly a defense or criticism of the Party or its supportersOnenexpected result of reading this book was how it gave me a greater critical eye just not at China but of our western countries due to the outside perspective provided by the young and old Chinese people he interviewed Through the book you discover how common a perspective it is among the Chinese that even though Americans are highly critical of China s government anyone with a critical eye can see that the American government is extremely similar to China s over bearing state in many ways One example is how the US gov touches every market and industry not just at home but globally and loves over policing and militarization So ltimately you must credit China for having at least one thing going for it their government is honest about their oppression They just may not be as good at obscuring it as other countriesI can t stop talking about this book among my friends Highly good at obscuring it as other countriesI can t stop talking about this book among my friends Highly

ambitious in this his National Book Award winning compendium of current Chinese political culture Subtitled Chasing Fortune Truth and Faith in the New China this book extends and expands essays he d already published in The New Yorker magazine and gives outsiders a glimpse into the confusion and mad exciting reality that is China todayOsnos covers a lot of ground and at the risk of appearing to be a ping pong ball in the hands of a giant he patiently and persistently over a period of years pursues big The Making of Goldeneye uestions about what China culture is and is becoming We can extrapolate from his work to consider what change in China means tos around the world I admit to exhaustion when contemplating China s development because of its overwhelmingly big populous and ncontrollable aspects But one thing is sure ordinary Chinese people have a kind of get ahead entrepreneurial mentality that swamps the vitality of ordinary American life The distance from their basic living starting point and ours is so great that their desperate energy is going to be the propulsion for societies around the globe We can t keep pace but we can gain in their slipstreamOsnos makes reporting in societies around the globe We can t keep pace but we can gain in their slipstreamOsnos makes reporting in look easy even when it clearly is not even now The state has loosened its grip a little but there is still the possibility of community or state backlash on individuals that speak to him openly Those community or state backlash on individuals that speak to him openly Those are courageous souls Osnos managed to corral the size and scope of his story to a manageable level and yet was able to give s an idea of the great energy being nleashed among the populace and the Chinese government s pride and fear I am currently reading about the North Korean regime in Pyongyang A Kim Jong Il Production The Extraordinary True Story of a Kidnapped Filmmaker His Star Actress and a Young Dictator s Rise to Power by Paul Fischer and so the Chinese and a Young Dictator s Rise to Power by Paul Fischer and so the Chinese looks far less effective and controlling by comparison But the richness of Osnos s life in China comes through I especially liked the reportage in the Epilogue that shows from several long term studies over two decades no evidence that the Chinese people are on average any happier If anything they are less satisfied than in 1990 and the burden of decreasing satisfaction has fallen hardest on the bottom third of the population in wealth Satisfaction among Chinese in even the pper third has risen only moderately Overall they found economic growth is not enough job security and a social safety net are also crtitical to people s happiness Ah Well both Chinese and American officials could learn something from this This book won the 2014 National Book Award for Nonfiction Shenzhen landslide December 2015 Tianjin explosion August 2015 Oriental Star Cruise Ship Disaster June 2015There are a lot of China books out there As China is a constantly changing country I m sometimes frustrated by how Vee for Victory uickly outdated books become However if I had to recommend one book to a person who is interested to learn about contemporary China I think Osnos Age of Ambition is the perfect recommendation He hits the nail about the Party and the stories he collected from the people he interviewed are a realistic reflection of what is happening in China right now He did a wonderful job weaving the stories together and I thought it was brilliant how he managed to divide the books into three themes fortune truth and faith I m not going to write about the characters he interviewed do yourself a favor and read about them yourselvesFavoriteotes The longer I lived in China the it seemed that people had come to see the economic boom as a train with a limited number of seats For those who found a seat because they arrived early they had the right family they paid the right bribe progress was beyond their imagination Everyone else could run as far and fast as their legs would carry them but they would only be able to watch the caboose shrink into the distanceIn its abuses and deceptions the Chinese government was failing to make a persuasive argument for what it meant to be Chinese in the modern world The Party had rested its legitimacy on prosperity stability and a pantheon of hollow heroes In doing so it had disarmed itself in the battle for the soul and it sent Chinese individuals out to wander the market of ideas in search of icons of their own. In English and devoted to Western pop culture consider themselves angry youth dedicated to resisting the West's influence How are Chinese from all strata finding meaning after two decades of the relentless pursuit of wealth Writing with great narrative verve and a keen sense of irony Osnos follows the moving stories of everyday people and reveals life in the new China to be a battleground between aspiration and authoritarianism in which only one can preva.
