Foreign Teachers in China: Old Problems for a New Generation, 1979-1989


Porter explores the myth that foreign teachers going to China today enter with a conscious desire to change China in their own image. The Chinese still prefer that foreigners play a limited role as teacher and prove suspicious of those who desire a broader role. Although China's relationship with the West entered a new era after the events in Beijing during June of 1989, Foreign Teachers in China represents the first time official agreements between China and the United States have appeared side-by-side. Complete texts of official agreements between U.S. programs and Chinese universities and institutions and government agencies highlight this timely study.
