Description
Being prepared in China, says one researcher, can mean "the difference between a headache and a productive day". Acclaimed by readers, this friendly and practical volume - now updated with important new information - offers all the details academic and other visitors need to make long-term stays in China productive, comfortable, and fun. Academic opportunities in the PRC have greatly increased in recent years. China Bound provides an overview of what we have learned from our academic exchanges with China, the opportunities now available, and resources for more information. To help visitors prepare for daily life, the book covers everything from how to obtain the correct travel documents to how to find parts for your computer. Frank discussions on the research and academic environments in China will help students, investigators, and teachers, from their initial assignment to a work unit to leaving the country with research materials intact. The book offers practical guidelines on understanding Chinese attitudes and customs toward study, research, work, and social life. New material in this edition includes an expanded section on science and social science field work. Living costs, health issues, and addresses and fax numbers for important services are updated. Guidance is offered on currency, transportation, communications, taking children to China, and other issues.
