CHINA ROAD A Journey Into the Future of a Rising Power

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Simon Vance

Contemporary Culture • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

Want to learn more about a country that will increasingly impact our lives for years to come? Ride along with Gifford as he travels from Shanghai to Kazakhstan on China’s longest road. You’ll think it’s the writer himself talking—so closely does Simon Vance approximate his age, British nationality, and dexterity with the Chinese language. He helps make you see the vibrant modernity of Shanghai and the beauty of the Gobi Desert, the pollution, cookie-cutter factories, and ubiquitous karaoke bars and enlivens conversations with construction workers, bus passengers, and population control personnel. At the end of this valuable listening experience, Gifford predicts China’s chances of making it as a major power. J.B.G.
