China Inc. by Ted Fishman Helps us Understand Many of the Dramatic Changes in Society

I read China Inc. How the Rise of the Next Superpower Challenges America and the World while flying to Asia for the first time.  I am thankful that I read the book before I arrived in Vietnam because it helped me prepare for things I would see there that would have been even more of a shock had I not had any insight into the dramatic changes occurring in the world.

Eight years and many trips to Asia later, I think the book is still quite relevant for those who want to understand the massive changes that are still taking place in Asia and how they affect our country and our educational system.  These changes have many implications for campus safety as well, particularly the pervasive desire among so many people from China, Vietnam and other parts of Asia to attend American universities due to their excellent reputations. 

The world is still changing at a remarkable speed and the impact on our educational system is nothing short of profound.
