About the Book

Visiting scholar Li Qingjuan came a long way from China to the Western world for a total of fifteen months of study. Her study began at Oxford University in the United Kingdom and finished at the Columbia University in the United States. This book does not only cover her inspiration during her time in the UK and US but also share her thoughts on the development of international financial centres, globalization, and openness of international cities and current economic status for both countries. Those 450 days experienced abroad, along with her sociologist and economist background, gives this book a really special perspective.
