You Don’t Know China takes a wrecking ball to misconceptions ranging from history and economics to language and food. Does Chinese medicine work? Did Marco Polo really go to China? Is the Great Wall great, and is it even a wall? Should consumers feel guilty about Chinese factory workers? Is studying Mandarin worth the effort?

You Don’t Know China is an amusing, eye-opening and sometimes controversial shortcut to understanding this complex country. John Grant Ross, author of Formosan Odyssey, demolishes both long-held Orientalist stereotypes and the current hyperbole surrounding China’s supposed rise to global supremacy.
