Changing Minds, by Professor of French John O'Neal
O'Neal Book, Changing Minds, Published
Professor of French John O'Neal is the author of a new book, Changing Minds, The Shifting Perception of Culture in Eighteenth Century France, published by University of Delaware Press. According to the publisher's Web site, "In this study of the epistemological underpinnings of cultural changes in the French Enlightenment, O’Neal shows how many of the cultural changes brought about by eighteenth-century French thinkers arise from the different forms of knowledge and experiences they pursued.

Time Magazine Quoted Cheng Li
According to a Time magazine article (Nov. 25) China's new president Hu Jianto may be years away from becoming China's true leader. Former president Jiang Zemin, when he took control of the government 13 years ago, at least had behind-the-scenes backing from his predecessor, Deng Xiaoping. Hu may not be able to count on Jiang's support, portending political infighting that will distract the country's leaders from China's pressing social and economic challenges, which include rising unemployment and epidemic corruption. "Jiang has made a terrible mistake" by undermining Hu and hanging on to power, said Cheng Li, a professor and China expert at Hamilton College. More ...
