Inhaltsangabe: Currently a best seller in Taiwan, and also published in Japan by Random House, the 2010-2011 International Edition of Fault Lines On The Face Of China: 50 Reasons Why China May Never Be Great is now available in the original English. Author David Marriott - the Englishman who originated the notorious 'China Bounder' character, was vilified by Mainland Chinese, and subsequently arrested and deported from China - is back with a searing treatment of Communist China's impending greatness. And author Karl Lacroix - the Canadian who risked arrest to return to China to destroy files and documents incriminating his sources, uses his 16+ years of living inside the Mainland to reveal the faults Communist China wishes to hide. FAULT LINES ON THE FACE OF CHINA: 50 REASONS CHINA MAY NEVER BE GREAT, bares the cold truth - no false platitudes - no sweet talking - no guff! Each reason is fully researched and supported, often in the words of the very Government Officials trying to present the glory of the Motherland to the world as a 'fait accompli'. Fault Lines is 496 pages, divided into 50 reasons - each perhaps more shocking than the last. Each reason is 100% currently active inside the nation of China - festering - infecting the Chinese people's future and, yes, possibly affecting the entire world. Lacroix and Marriott warn you - within the covers of this book you will not find solutions, sage advice or attempts at problem solving - nor will you find balanced, glad handing commentary, or sunshine comments such as, 'circumstances are improving' or 'things are getting better'. You will find the truth and the proof of it. Undecorated, unembellished, and unencumbered by politics, tradition or ideology - pure, unbalanced, and cold - as the truth is best told. There is cold truth to be found in China and in FAULT LINES ON THE FACE OF CHINA: 50 REASONS WHY CHINA MAY NEVER BE GREAT.

Über den Autor: DAVID MARRIOTT After studying literature to graduate level in the UK, David Marriott decided to strike out in a new direction - China. In 1999, he began to work with Shanghai Daily, spending 30 months there before moving on to teaching and writing, which brought him into contact with a wide cross-section of Chinese people. In 2006, he began to write the 'China Bounder' blog, which drew blistering attacks from China, and then gained international attention. In 2008, because of his political activities, he was arrested by Shanghai police, and questioned for 24 hours before being deported to Hong Kong. He hopes to return to China, but with the communist regime's inability to accept any form of criticism, Marriott does not expect this to happen any time soon. In addition to studies in Chinese literature, Marriott is a student of the Chinese language. "China's young generation need to find their voice and raise it loud. They need to understand that criticizing their own country is truly patriotic. Only when this happens will China ever be able to meaningfully change." KARL LACROIX Karl Lacroix's arrival in China in the summer of 1992 was for him a dream come true. He hoped China would fulfill his need for a 'new' land and the element of philosophical promise. In the early nineties, China indeed was the new 'promised land' for many Western adventurers. For Karl, the search lasted from 1992 until 2008. Karl's father, serving in the Canadian army, moved his family across oceans and continents as his soldier's duty called, instilling Karl's youth with wanderlust that only Asia has really satiated. An English-born mother and an American-born father gave birth to a sense of bicultural internationalism that formed Karl's character. As a cub reporter for a local city newspaper in Ontario, words became important, not because they were rewarded, but because they could receive a profound reaction if written well and boldly. Karl's powers of observation, and an international viewpoint, have directed him to voice his 'protest' over China's failure to seek a higher calling than that of just being the largest consumer market in the history of the world. "China needs to envision the world's benefit from a free and democratic Chinese people. Great countries have a duty to the world to do great things. China should be no less than the greatest country, with a great future for the benefit of all mankind."
