Read full description of the books Away from China:When Italian citizen Roberto G. Ferrari embarked on a journey to adopt a young Chinese boy, the twenty-five days the adoptive father spent there offered him a rare insider's vantage of the famously closed country during an intensely intimate time for his family. To process the experience, the adoptive father chronicled those days in China, exploring the country through the deeply personal lens of his son's connection to his homeland. Ferrari also took in China from the perspective of a Westerner attempting to make sense of this burgeoning global power. Both reflective and informative, Ferrari's detailed account of the adoption process takes in modern China as it increasingly opens its doors to the Western world. In doing so, "Away from China" offers invaluable practical guidance on the international adoption process, as well as the author's insight on key locales in the country from the point of view of a seasoned traveler. From the monuments of Taiyuan to Tienanmen Square, "Away from China" considers this fascinating, rapidly changing nation for an adoptive father and his Chinese son.
