At Home in China
In his latest book, author Frank Sieren offers his audience look at China through the eyes of Germans who have been living there for a long time. Far away from their home country, they are no natural part of Germany anymore and yet they will never become Chinese either. They live between the cultures. In many cases it was their job that made these "expatriates" end up in China, and finally their stay lasted much longer than originally planned. The constant switch of perspectives makes them intermediators between East and West. We can benefit from the experience of these contemporary witnesses. For China’s rise also affects the future of Europe.
