Using Confucianism as their foundational philosophy provides them with a usefully indirect way of critiquing the Communist authorities. Yu has proven particularly successful at criticizing current norms without ever falling into taboo territory. Such efforts are not without effect, as the example of Bradley shows. This negotiation of social status in a commercializing and globalizing China is complemented by a simultaneous negotiation of status globally.
Chinese intellectual voices are urging the promotion of Confucian values across the world. When Yu has been challenged in the past over the accuracy of details of his writings, he has brushed them aside, and has brought the focus back to these big ideas. But the only means that they have of influencing many people with their ideas is paradoxically through the very mass commercial culture that they condemn as immoral and deleterious.
Yu, Yao and their fellow travellers know their only chance is to embed the junzi in nationalist sentiment. Yet, if they succeed, they may find, as Meissner warns, that they have helped create a rather more unpleasant regime than the one that they envisaged. I am grateful to Professor Kam Louie for highlighting this point in comments on my presentation of an earlier version of this paper at University of San Francisco, November This culturalist movement, which is dominated by men, has energized historical masculine ideals such as the junzi.

The Philosophy of Chinese Moral Education
Journal of Guangdong University of Business Studies 3 : 28—36, Hangzhou: Zhejiang daxue chubanshe, Yoshino, Kosaku. Cultural Nationalism in Contemporary Japan. London and New York: Routledge, Beijing: Beijing lianhe chuban gongsi, Zhao, Suisheng. With a focus on junzi masculinity in texts and subjectivity, this paper examines recently published major works on the junzi by public intellectuals and the ways in which professional Chinese men negotiate the junzi ideal in a context of increasing globalization and marketization.
Drawing on the concept of cultural nationalism, I argue that the promotion of the junzi ideal is a form of identity-making that seeks to legitimize a moralised view of national culture. This paper demonstrates that highly educated Chinese men are reworking the figure of the junzi in a quest to shape cultural nationalist discourses in their gender and class interests; yet this approach raises the risk of inciting racialized nationalism.

Rating details. More filters. Sort order. Start your review of China - Culture Smart! I read this while on a vacation in China, and was quite satisfied. It does exactly what it sets out to do: provides an introduction to Chinese life and customs for a new visitor from the West. It touches on many aspects of life, from philosophy to business to correct behavior, and there are fascinating sections on how your average Chinese person lives, pidgin English, the importance of punctuality, how to behave at banquets, and more. It's alright for what it is was made for: a largely basic but informative quick-guide to Chinese culture.
Give it a read if you're interested in visiting China and are worried about some of their common customs. Not exactly my cup of tea, though. This is a good quick book covering a lot of basics. There is history, customs, tips for western travelers and sight-seeing recommendations.

It's a good place to start getting a general idea of what you'll need to know before you go. An example of a complaint I would have is that they describe the standard configuration of the traditional chinese toilet but there is no good example diagram of how you use it. I found the answer quickly online. On the flipside, Frommer's guide goes into way more This is a good quick book covering a lot of basics.
On the flipside, Frommer's guide goes into way more detail than is helpful for someone just looking for an overview.
