Eight essays on Chinese affairs comprise this document. Compiled in response to the China Council's objective of making available to the public materials which meet the steadily rising demand for information about contemporary China, the document focuses on Chinese art, literature, politics, foreign policy, literature, society, and economic development. Each of the articles mixes a succinct review of current affairs with broader analysis of implications for China and China's roles in the world. Authors include officials from the Asia Society and professors of political science, economics, oriental art, and East Asian languages and cultures. Essay titles are "Introduction," by Robert B. Oxnam; "Deng Xiaoping: China's Old Man in a Hurry," by Richard C. Bush; "Politics in the prc: Entering the Fourth Decade," by David M. Lampton; "China's Economic Readjustment: Recovery or Paralysis?" By Nicholas R. Lardy; "Painting with a New Brush: Art in Post-Mao China." By Michael Sullivan; "Recent Chinese Literature: a Second Hundred Flowers," by Leo Ou-fan Lee; "Chinese Foreign Policy in 1979," by Robert A. Scalapino; and "Uncertain Future: Politics in Taiwan," by Hung-mao Tien. Basic themes which appear repeatedly throughout these essays include that the remarkable changes in Chinese politics and economics have been paralleled by a dramatic opening in the areas of art and literature, there is a new seriousness about education, religion is enjoying a resurgence in several major cities, the Chinese are working very hard to restore unity after the topsy-turvy years of the Cultural Revolution, and rapid economic development has overshadowed egalitarianism as China's central goal. The document concludes with appendices which present information on biographical sketches of members of the Chinese Communist politburo and on a statistical profile of Chinese economic development.

A fractured mind : my life with multiple personality disorder by Robert B Oxnam( Book )

The heartbreaking memoir of a prominent scholar's long journey to put the pieces of his fractured life together. In 1989, Oxnam, successful China scholar and president of the Asia Society, faced up to what he thought was his biggest personal challenge: alcoholism. But this dependency masked a problem far more serious: multiple personality disorder. At the peak of his professional career, Oxnam was haunted by periodic blackouts and episodic rages. After his family and friends intervened, Oxnam received help from a psychiatrist and entered a rehab center. It wasn't until six months later that the first of Oxnam's eleven alternate personalities--an angry young boy named Tommy--suddenly emerged. With the therapist's help, Oxnam began the exhausting and fascinating process of uncovering his many personalities and the childhood trauma that caused his condition.--From publisher description

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1989, Robert B. Oxnam, the successful China scholar and president of the Asia Society, faced up to what he thought was his biggest personal challenge: alcoholism. But this dependency masked a problem far more serious: Multiple Personality Disorder. At the peak of his professional career, after having led the Asia Society for nearly a decade, Oxnam was haunted by periodic blackouts and episodic rages. After his family and friends intervened, Oxnam received help from a psychiatrist, Dr. Jeffery Smith, and entered a rehab center. It wasn't until 1990 during a session with Dr. Smith that the first of Oxnam's eleven alternate personalities - an angry young boy named Tommy - suddenly emerged. With Dr. Smith's help, Oxnam began the exhausting and fascinating process of uncovering his many personalities and the childhood trauma that caused his condition. A Fractured Mind is the powerful and moving story of one person's struggle with this terrifying illness. The audio book includes an epilogue by Dr. Smith in which he describes Oxnam's case, the treatment, and the nature of multiple personality disorder. Oxnam's courage in facing his situation and overcoming his painful past makes for a dramatic and inspiring book
