Synopsis

This novel, part 3, is radically different from parts one and two. E. Ted Gladue a China specialist argues that China will determine the fate of the 21st century as surely as Germany and Russia determined the 20th century, and to understand China's thinking and motivations in the 21st century is unlike analyzing any other nation (he being the author of two respected scholarly books on china). In his frustration to get at the motivating core of China's psychology in International Affairs in a dissertation on China in the UN and another on its foreign policy decisions he came to the conslusion that the only way to under China in the 21st century was to study its deep 5000 year old history and culture, arguing that this history remains the primary influence on China's 21st century perceptions and ambitions. Semineaux is ship wrecked and taken back in time to ancient China as a witness to the brutal birth and unification of China in 221 BC under the First Emperor, Ch'in Shih Huang-ti, giving the read of this novel not just a fun experience, but an understanding into the Chinese mind, which he tried to teach at many universities who rejected this methodology, including Princeton University. (please note: on March 31, 2011 the Chinese Communist Part all but bannedd drams featuring TIME TRAVEL, characters being taken back to ancient times). Perhaps, E. Ted Gladue is on to something using ancient Chinese thinking to understand Chinese behavior in the 21 st century.
