Inhaltsangabe

This program is read by the author.

The author, in his 20s, who is fluent in Chinese, examines the future of China through the lens of the Jiu Ling Hou - the generation born after 1990. 

A close-up look at the Chinese generation born after 1990, exploring through personal encounters how young Chinese feel about everything from money and sex to their government, the West, and China’s shifting role in the world - not to mention their love affair with food, karaoke, and travel. Set primarily in the Eastern 2nd tier city of Suzhou and the budding Western metropolis of Chengdu, the book charts the touchstone issues this young generation faces. From single-child pressure to test-taking madness and the frenzy to buy an apartment as a prerequisite to marriage, from one-night stands to an evolving understanding of family, Young China offers a fascinating portrait of the generation who will define what it means to be Chinese in the modern era. 

Zak Dychtwald was 20 when he first landed in China. He spent years deeply immersed in the culture, learning the language and hanging out with his peers in apartment shares and hostels, on long train rides, and over endless restaurant meals.

Kritikerstimmen

"To make sense of contemporary China, it is crucial to understand the varied aspirations, anxieties, fears and fantasies of the many millions of Chinese - as big a group as the entire populations of some sizeable countries - who were born after the year that soldiers killed protestors near Tiananmen Square. Young China provides an excellent starting point for doing just that." (The Wall Street Journal)

Insightful and Entertaining

I'm a millennial marketing consultant, so after finding out about Zak Dychtwald's Young China, I knew I had to read it. I always expect books like this to be informative but dry, so I was positively surprised by the fact that Young China is not only very informative and insightful, but also very well written and frequently very touching. The author struck great balance between (often dazzling) facts and personal stories. I highly recommend it to both professionals as well as casual readers with an interest in China and/or youth culture in general.
