Summary
With its dramatic rise in economic and geopolitical importance, China has become a land of opportunity for foreigners from the West-although in certain cases, "foreigner" is a problematic term. This program presents compelling firsthand accounts of six "ABCs" (American-born Chinese) who have moved to Beijing in search of career progress and a better grasp of their identities. Candidly sharing personal reactions to the nation's rapidly evolving political climate, social divisions, and business culture, each participant must come to terms with the reality of modern China-and its departure from the sentimental notions he or she acquired in childhood
