CHINA—with a population of 1.29 billion, in an area of more than 3.7 million square miles (almost 10 million kilometers), an economy of tremendous strength and capability, a continuous civilization thousands of years old—how can we begin to understand this dynamic and diverse nation?

This section of Sinomania! attempts to answer, simply and objectively, many of the most commonly asked questions about China. To those readers with preconceived notions about China, I ask only that you put them aside, follow the links, and let the facts speak for themselves. Then use the information here to form a bigger and better picture of China.
