Taiwan or, more correctly, the Republic of China on Taiwan, is a sort of Asian Israel.
For most Europeans, World War II began with Germany's invasion of Poland in September 1939. Many Asians, however, date the war from May 1937, when Japanese forces in China created an "incident" that metastasized into all-out war. It was a war that China was ill-equipped to fight.
Comprehensive "engagement" has been a cornerstone of U.S. policy toward China since the Nixon administration. But the bedrock of Beijing's U.S. policy is paranoia over what Chinese leaders believe is a "peaceful evolution" conspiracy designed to overthrow the communist dictatorship via the ideological and spiritual infiltration of China's society.
The Department of Education pulled a "Quote of the Day" by Chinese dictator Mao Zedong from its children's website Friday after a screenshot of the quote went viral.
Lei Feng, the famed half-real, half-fabricated communist model soldier — killed when a telephone pole fell on him more than 50 years ago — is making a dramatic comeback in China's cultural and political life, thanks to vigorous promotion by the Communist Party's new leader, Xi Jinping.
No one lives forever _ nor do they last forever. At least not without a lot of tuneups.
Xi Jinping, anointed last month as China's new leader, was an impressionable 9-year-old in 1962 when his father, a prominent revolutionary and vice premier, fell out of favor with Mao Zedong.
At a time when China's economy and society are under considerable strain and the country is embroiled in increasingly tense border disputes with its neighbors, the relatively peaceful once-in-a-decade political transition in Beijing has helped deflect attention from the underlying turbulence in the Chinese system.
During China's last party congress, the cadres in charge of the world's most populous nation didn't know a hashtag from a hyperlink. But five years on, there's a new message from Beijing: The political transition will be microblogged.
The next leader of China spent much of his youth living in a dug-out cave.
The credibility of China's official verdict on disgraced communist leader Bo Xilai is under serious challenge by China's many neo-Maoists.
The face of dissatisfaction with China's Communist Party is the face of the man synonymous with it: Mao Zedong.
The son of fallen Chinese politician Bo Xilai defended his academic record and social life while at universities in England and the United States in a letter that is the latest example of the extraordinary public evolution of China's messiest political scandal.
As big-city politician Bo Xilai rose to nationwide prominence with an anti-mafia crusade and mass sing-alongs of communist anthems, many of China's leaders trekked to his metropolis approvingly. Not President Hu Jintao.
The recently announced shift in the U.S. strategic emphasis toward the Asia-Pacific region represents a strategic bluff by a declining America against a rising China that will fail because China can defeat the U.S. militarily.
As eclectic as he was prolific, his influences including Kafka, Ray Bradbury and Mao Zedong, Baraka wrote poems, short stories, essays, plays, music criticism and jazz operas.
He writes with rare objectivity on subjects that remain controversial today, and his illustrations are both poignant and pertinent.
