One Hundred Questions and Answers About East Asian Cultures is part of the Michigan State University School of Journalism series in cultural competence.
This guide is organized to answer common questions people need to answer as they encounter East Asians in communities coast to coast—as co-workers, neighbors and friends. The book includes sections on East Asia’s geography, politics, government, values, customs, traditions, pop culture, families, language, education, religion, food and more. It explains the most common reasons that East Asians move to America—and the culture they bring with them. The guide is intended for people in business, schools, places of worship, government, medicine, law enforcement, human resources and journalism.
Among the 100 questions, you will learn:
What is Chinese medicine and does it work?
Why are Asian cultures so varied?
What is the ‘model minority’?
What is the one-child policy?
Who are the Hmong people?
