a wonderful and fascinating insight into the minds and methods of the Chinese and the Mongols of northern China. Explores many aspects of their culture, though Jankowiak does not really differentiate between the two (much of the Mongol culture has been assimilated by the Han, or Chinese). my favorite chapters were chapter 6: Strangers Mediating Strangers, demonstrating the communal mentality of the Chinese, and chapter 8: Romance in Daily Life, because of the many similarities to Western cultures and the differences based on the different mentalities. though my research deals mostly with ancient China, Sex, Death, and Hierarchy in a Chinese City provides wonderful insight and is a truly fascinating read.
