We have read Hessler’s River Town. Write a brief summary of the content and your overall impression of the book (no more than 1.5 pages). The rest of the essay is devoted to answering the following questions: Comparing Americans with Chinese, what are the two sets of contrasts according to anthropologist Francis Hsu (cite the lecture, and you may also want to read textbook 385-386)? Pick one topic (e.g. the educational practice, drinking and banquet, the dam, etc.) from River Town which interests you the most, and discuss how Francis Hsu’s point of view could be applied in this particular case to explain the difference(s) between Americans and Chinese (focus on other cultural aspects rather than political system). With some basic training of cultural anthropology through this class, did you find any ethnocentrism in Hessler who is not an anthropologist? Are there any other contrasts you, yourself, might find through your reading of River Town, the textbook (Chapter 8), and our lectures on Chinese Traditional Culture? Are there any similarities? And what are they?
