Xdyj's books

I'm a Chinese student studying in the U. S.. I like reading and talking about books I like or dislike.
Please add me as a friend if you want to.

The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order - Samuel P. Huntington Pretty well written, though imho many opinions in it might be oversimplified or overgeneralized. At least as someone growing up in the so-called "Sinic civilization", I can't imagine our future leaders to be stupid enough to ever directly challenge the west for world dominance. Finally IMO non-western cultures can be reformed to embrace "western" values like individual freedom and human rights, e.g. Japan and Taiwan, though such reforms could take decades and sometimes cost a lot of lives.
