E-Learning in China

By Bao Huaying,Chen Geng,ZENG Haijun

Sage Publications, 2014. Hardcover. New. This book presents a review of Chinese experience in e-learning. It outlines the background of e-learning in the country and charts out its development. E-learning has two forms here: the e-learning colleges in 68 regular universities and the open University system led by the Open University of China. The off-campus support systems for e-learning students include public service systems with Chinese characteristics, except for learning centers. This education primarily targets people outside school—adult employees—and provides education services to rural areas, industries, remote areas, and the army. In its current state, this forms the biggest e-learning system in the world. The authors have consulted statistics and reports of the National Bureau of Statistics and the Ministry of Education and have further collected data and information from e-learning colleges and their Web sites of the open university system. E-Learning in China will benefit practitioners, researchers, and management staff involved in e-learning and also serve as a work of reference for learning, research, management, and operation of the e-learning industry.

Challenges to Chinese Foreign Policy:Diplomacy, Globalization, and the Next World Power

By Yufan Hao, C. X. George Wei & Lowell Dittmer (Eds)

KW Publishers, 2013. Hardcover. New. When Beijing hosted the 2008 Summer Olympics, China symbolically demonstrated its role as an emerging world power—a position it is not likely to relinquish anytime soon. China’s growing economy, military reforms, and staggering productivity have contributed to its ascendancy as a major player in international affairs. Other nations are reevaluating their economic and political relationships with China as it grows into a legitimate superpower. As a bastion of communism and a historically insular country, China remains enigmatic. In Challenges to Chinese Foreign Policy: Diplomacy, Globalization, and the Next World Power, editors Yufan Hao, C.X. George Wei, and Lowell Dittmer define the “peacefully rising” position currently articulated by Beijing and its implications for international peace and security. They also describe the world’s evolving perceptions of Chinese foreign relations, as well as Beijing’s diplomatic strategy toward the United States, Europe, Japan, Russia, and other Asian nations. Western scholars have attempted to explain Chinese foreign policy using historical or theoretical evidence, but until this volume, few studies from a Chinese perspective have been published in English. Challenges to Chinese Foreign Policy reveals how Chinese scholars view their nation’s rise to global dominance. Drawing on the knowledge of a wealth of foreign relations experts including scholars native to the region, this volume examines the unique challenges China faces as it adapts to being a world leader, and it analyzes how China’s international relationships are shaping the global landscape of the twenty-first century.

Chinese Lessons from Other Peoples` Wars

By Andrew Scobell, David Lai, & Roy Kamphausen (Eds)

Lancer Publishers, 2012. Hardcover. New. Why did observers of the PLA want to study what Chinese military analysts might learned about non-Chinese wars? The answer is twofold. First, the PLA has not fought an actual war since 1979. Yet, during the last 3 decades, fundamental changes have taken place on the battlefield and in the conduct of war. Since the PLA has not fought since 1979, it had no experience in the changing face of war, and thus could not follow Mao Zedong’s admonition to “learn by doing”; instead, it must look abroad for ways to discern the new pattern of warfare in the evolving information age. Second, Chinese military analysts have noticeably more freedom in assessing and commenting on the strength and weakness as well as the success and failures of other countries’ wars. Indeed, for political reasons, Chinese military analysts have to emphasize the heroics and triumphs of the PLA’s war experience and downplay setbacks and failures. To date, there is no critical analysis of the PLA’s claimed success or dismissed failure in the Sino-Vietnamese Border War of 1979 by Chinese military analysts. Studying Chinese military analysts’ observation of other people’s wars, therefore, provide us key hints as to what Chinese military analysts consider important aspects of current and future military operational success and failure. The importance of China stems not only from its current international role and its influence on the Asia-Pacific region in particular, but also because China’s impact on global developments will likely continue to grow. This volume provides unique, valuable insights on how the PLA has applied the lessons learned from others’ military actions to its own strategic planning. Printed Pages: 336. NA

Threat from China

By Bharat Verma (Ed.)

Lancer Publishers, 2011. Hardcover. New. The multi-dimensional threat between 2011 and 2014 from China is real. The threat from China has crept to level ‘Orange’ for the past many years and the creeping invasion built over decades displays great features of stealth. First, they invaded and forcibly occupied independent Tibet. Subsequently, to protect their flank in Tibet, the Chinese demand that Arunachal be part of China. Theoretically, even if India hands over conveniently termed Southern Tibet, they will want to occupy whole of Northeast to protect flanks of Arunachal. China primarily feels threatened by existence of the Union of India as it challenges their ambition of being the unilateral power leading Asia. Instead of integration of the citizenry and consolidation of different regions, our shortsighted politicians extend a helping hand to China and Pakistan by dividing Indians internally for vote-bank-politics. Indians continue to live in isolated compartments of their making without inter-linkages with the big picture. This compartmentalized thinking is a cultural defect that ensures absence of connectivity with other multiple lateral tactical pictures. These small pictures if sensibly stitched together create ‘whole’ which helps in formulation of a grand strategy. In this volume, Indian Defence Review with the help of its contributors provides, a fairly integrated picture of the multi-dimensional threat that China poses, and offers many fresh alternatives.
