'Fuchsia Dunlop, our great writer and expert on Chinese gastronomy, has fallen in love with this region and its cuisine – and her book makes us fall in love too' Claudia Roden 'Fuchsia Dunlop's erudite writing infuses each page and her delicious recipes will inspire any serious cook to take up their wok' Ken Hom The Lower Yangtze region or Jiangnan, with its modern capital Shanghai, has been known since ancient times as a 'Land of Fish and Rice'. For centuries, local cooks have been using the plentiful produce of its lakes, rivers, fields and mountains, combined with delicious seasonings and flavours such as rice vinegar, rich soy sauce, spring onion and ginger, to create a cuisine that is renowned in China for its delicacy and beauty. Drawing on years of study and exploration, Fuchsia Dunlop explains basic cooking techniques, typical cooking methods and the principal ingredients of the Jiangnan larder. Her recipes are a mixture of simple rustic cooking and rich delicacies – some are famous, some unsung. You'll be inspired to try classic dishes such as Beggar's chicken and sumptuous Dongpo pork. Most of the recipes contain readily available ingredients and with Fuchsia's clear guidance, you will soon see how simple it is to create some of the most beautiful and delicious dishes you'll ever taste. With evocative writing and mouth-watering photography, this is an important new work about one of China's most fascinating culinary regions.

The Jianghan Plain in central China has been shaped by its relationship with water. Once a prolific rice-growing region that drew immigrants to its fertile paddy fields, it has, since the eighteenth century, become prone to devastating flooding and waterlogging. Over time, population pressures and dike building left more and more people in the region vulnerable to frequent water calamities. The first environmental and socioeconomic history of the region, Coping with Calamity considers the Jianghan Plain's volatile environment, the constant challenges it presented to peasants, and their often ingenious and sophisticated responses during the Qing and Republican periods.

""All Across China"" is one of the first children's books that Chipmunkapublishing has published and is proud to call its own. This book was the result of the input of several knowledgeable people, including two Asian Americans and one Asian family member of the authors' who currently lives in Guangxi Province. In addition, the book is presently being translated into Chinese for distribution in China by an Asian professor at Beijing University, who is in assocation with Five College Center for East Asia Studies.""Feedback from Libraries, schools, adoption agencies and adoptive families: I have to tell you - I LOVED that book!! I added it to the library, but it took everything in me!! I SO wanted to keep a copy for our daughters! What a wonderful treasure - I plan to blog on it this week! We received your beautiful books today...Thank you so much. Our staff and children will really enjoy them!Thank you for the copies of your fun and educational books. I found them to be informative, colorful, and an exciting way to learn about the countries of China and Canada. Thank you immensely for the complimentary copy of ""All Across China"" and ""All Across Canada."" We are quite pleased to put them into circulation.Thank you for the books - they arrived in the post today. All across China is very informative and simply presented which will appeal to quite a large age range. The format in all the books is nice and easy for children and parents to use. Well done! Thank you so very much for the wonderful books! I am happy to report that the State of Virginia is going to be changing the social studies curriculum for 5th grade within a year or so to include a concentration on geography, which is a wonderful addition to the curriculum. Therefore, these books on China and Canada will be great resources not only for the China unit that 2nd graders do, but also for any student researching other countries or geography! Thank you again for your generosity, on behalf of our students and teachers! I am an FCC mom. Your book looks great! I am trying to decide when to bring L back to China -- at 6 or 7. Your book will help get ready! Thank you for the books you sent. It was interesting to read about our daughter's birth place, Kunming (Yunnan Province). We hope to visit the Stone Forest when we travel back there for a heritage tour. After thumbing through the ""all Across Canada"" book and finding a few interesting details that I didn't know, I plan on reading that one to my son and daughter too.

Providing an account of the role of informal institutions in Chinese rural development, this book, based on a decade of fieldwork of village life in the Chinese countryside, puts forth a distinctive argument on a very important topic in Chinese economic and social affairs. Focusing in particular on three major informal institutions: village trust and Rotating Savings and Credit Associations (ROSCAs), guanxi community and Integrating Village with Company (IVWC) governance, it argues that informal institutions, traditions and customs are all critical factors for facilitating modernization and social and economic development, promoting the integration of trust, reciprocity, responsibility and obligation into economic and social exchange processes and considerably lowering risks and transactions costs. This detailed account is an invaluable resource for postgraduates and researching studying and working in this area. Winner of the 2008 Zhang Peigang Development Economics Award.

Jane Hutcheon's connection to China goes back more than one hundred and fifty years, when her great-great-grand-uncle Phineas, a Scottish tea merchant, was drawn to its shores. When Jane became the ABC's China correspondent in 1995, she began her own journey through an ancient and intriguing culture that is undergoing rapid change. Like learning to eat a dish of slippery braised pig's face, Jane had to learn the etiquette of reporting in China-a country where people often give interviews in lowered voices, or with a glance over their shoulders to see who might be listening. Though China has transformed itself into a heady capitalist republic, the country's new facade covers up a multitude of the same old problems. And in the lead up to the 2008 Beijing Olympics, the clash between new and old is more pronounced than ever. By talking with ordinary people-a glamorous Amway couple, a traffic cop, a rubbish collector and members of the Falun Gong, among others-Jane provides intimate insights into China's radical transformation. In the process, she discovers that the real China is intense, humorous, cynical and, quite often, bizarre. Travelling with a television crew, coping with a serious bout of 'banquet intolerance' and dealing with the frustration caused by Chinese bureaucracy, Jane takes us on a bumpy ride across a country the world is fascinated with, and that everyone is dying to get their chopsticks into.
