"Nowadays China is so much like America -- it's kind of scary"

“Nowadays, China is so much like America – it’s kind of scary,” says US-based Chinese writer Xujun Eberlein.

Xujun, who grew up in Mao’s China, moved in 1988 to the US, where she took a Ph.D. from MIT in Transportation Engineering and established herself as a writer. More info about her is available at

Her observation, quoted above, occurs in an article written for New America Media after a visit to her homeland.
