Review of Qian's Liuxue Meiguo
by David Cowhig
Qian Ning's "Liuxue Meiguo" ["Studying in America"] is full of profound and fair-minded reflections on China, the United States and Sino-American relations seen through the experiences of Chinese students in the United States. I wrote up this summary/review for some colleagues.

I have peppered it with page references for people who want to find the parts that interest them.
