Here's an interesting article on the Olympics and China's future.

BBC Radio 4 will have four lectures on China starting Tuesday June 3rd, 9 am (GMT).

- Lecture 1 : Chinese Vistas - Confucius

- Lectures 2 and 3 will explore British and American interactions with China.

- Lecture 4 is about changing Chinese ideals of the body, from the bound feet and queue of the Qing dynasty, to 7'-6" international basketball star Yao Ming.

Sounds like they should be interesting.  You can listen online here (click on the "Listen Live" button).  And if you're like me, and will be sleeping during the original airing, you can listen to archived lectures any time.
