Sandi This sounds interesting in light of our relationship with China. You're the only one who's read it. How about a quick review, please?

Shirley Hello Neil

I see you are traveling the world to obtain information for a book you are authoring. Writers' Oasis is a group of AOL writers.
It would be informative and encouraging if you could attend a session with us as a guest.
Sunday Monday Wednesday night at 9 ET. Please get in touch.

Neil I'm not sure I understand what the critic you quote is trying to say. The author of the book talks at one point about the nature of jurisprudence in the West as supposing innocence until guilt is proved, and the Chinese legal position of guilt until innocence is proven. There are places that the West falls away from that ideal, obviously and unfortunately, but you're talking about two kinds of very different legal and social assumptions.
