China: Promise Or Threat?: A Comparison of Cultures by Horst J. Helle
In China: Promise or Threat? Helle compares the cultures of China and the West through both private and public spheres. He argues that, for China, the private sphere of family life is well-defined and regulated, whereas behaviour in public relating to matters of government and law is less so. In contrast, in his view, the West inverts this arrangement.
