Problems 25 – China: Blue Ants and Dangerous Reds – now on-line
- Writing in 1950s, a French writer has no doubt that Mao’s new China is efficient, clean and orderly. He dislikes the loss of what he sees as the romance of Old China, while not denying the suffering.
- He also says “”China has therefore been Westernised for a second time, more completely than the first. China is no longer Asiatic. At most she will be Eurasian”.
- The article next studies what the same writer had said earlier. And then a bizarre US science fiction novel that shows the ignorance and prejudice about China at the time.
- Finally it looks at the Yangtze Incident of 1949, and how it ended a century of Western intrusion into China’s rivers.
