Introduction The topic of democracy in China is a highly controversial topic. Although China has not democratised, it has done well in the global situation amongst its democratic competitors. Since the path to democracy is different for each country, we cannot expect that China would follow the same path or same model of democracy as the western nations. This essay will look at what democracy is and how it can be placed in a Chinese context as well as looking at the proponents and opponents of democracy in China. It will also look at whether China is democratising by focusing on village elections, globalisation and the emergence of a civil society.
If people see and feel the effects of democracy then there is a better chance for global peace. This, combined with a China that believes in multilateralism so that no one, including the U.S., is left in a vulnerable position seems to be our best hope. Looking back, China was going through a leadership change. To secure the vote of the people China had to make sure its people believed in its country and did not need any third party interests interfering and causing social unrest. There are many speculations as to why China has reacted to some incidences they way it did.
China Rising invites people to gauge the Rise of China and its effects particularly on the East Asian countries with a new lens. David Kang argues that China’s rise cannot be compared with western nations from the past and it certainly cannot be concluded that its rise would provoke instability in the region. Kang introduces that “identities are central to explaining source of stability and potential instability in East Asia.” The author insists to look at China’s rise from the East Asian context by giving historical references and concluding that China was a dominating power responsible for peace in the region then; and is now as well. He asserts again and again that East Asian states do not fear china’s growth and do not work to balance its rise contrary to standard IR theories based on western experiences. This is mainly because of two bold reasons.
The political, Military, Economic, Social, In... ... middle of paper ... ...alysis to be conducted. I will strongly argue that this book aided in my professional development by helping me understand the cultural differences between the United States and China, thus improving my overall knowledge of the country. I believe that military leaders at all levels should take part in some type of cultural read / analysis. As a leader in today’s Army we should have a general knowledge of other countries, especially ones that are economic and military driven. Reading this book definitely displayed my weakness or lack of knowledge of the country of China.
Previously, the media would be constricted and not able to report on the incident however now, the party has relaxed it’s control somewhat, but the media is now told how to report the story. The party sets the medias agenda. (Chan, 2008). This paper will look at how the Chinese government uses agenda setting and it’s control over the media to promote the issues it believes in. Theory Agenda setting describes the ability of those in positions of power, to transfer salience to certain issues that they deem important, while pushing other issues that they deem less important to a lower priority and out of the public view.
As a result, the United States’ presence in Asia has a prevailing influence over China’s growth. However, the political battle between China and the United States is in low tones (Lu, 2012). This is because confrontations between two big powers will translate to mutual discussion. As a result, this research attempts to determine whether China can rise peacefully without destabilizing Asia. The research draws from the realism and interdependency theory with an aim of determining external conditions that will favor China’s peaceful rise.
This could only take place with a highly-unlikely radical change in the political structure of China, but to already have a solid user base leading into that situation would be highly advantageous. The arguments against entering into business with China are more complicated. China is a highly repressive Communist regime that has been accused of numerous human rights violations. The recent liberalization of their economic system has made doing business with this giant a "necessary evil" for many businesses around the world. They must adhere to rules that their home nations would find offensive and oppressive.
That commercial seemed a little extreme, so for this paper, I seek to correct these sorts of misconceptions, or to at least show that some arguments about the national debt are a little wrong. Probably the most important misconception about the national debt is the misconception that China owns most of the national debt, and that such a situation makes the United States government a puppet to China. The latter misconception doesn't take much research to see as an exaggeration of the truth. Unlike personal debt, national debt isn't enforced by some higher power. Money owed to China is a deal between the borrower and China, and there aren't any higher powers to force the collection of debts.
When various characters throughout the novellas challenge the accepted belief system they are outcast, ridiculed, or punished as a deterrent. The King of Trees uses compelling stories to illustrate how a belief system, whether imposed or implied, enforces social norms. Very different belief systems can result in stable cultures and communities. The King of Trees novella, focuses on how a powerful government can demand what is socially acceptable. The novellas are set in revolutionary China in the midst of major culture changes dictated by the government as necessary for people to live together successfully.
Task 4 A. Cross-cultural differences between United States and China Cross-cultural differences in verbal and non-verbal communication styles The issue of verbal and non-verbal communication styles is an important cross-cultural difference to consider when seeking expansion of business in China, because it can help Company ABC facilitate successful business transactions and outperform its competitors. According to a survey by the Economist Intelligence Unit with 572 business executives, 79% of the respondents indicated that communication barriers have resulted in low market share in China. It is highly imperative for Company ABC members to know how to engage probably to avoid misunderstandings, conflicts and potential loss of business clients. In the case of verbal communication, the obvious challenge lies in language difference. Although increasing amount of people are learning how to speak english, not having basic understudying of Mandarin or other Chinese dialects can have negative implications on the success of Company ABC.
