On My Way to a Happy Life, by New York Times best-selling author Deepak Chopra, is based on his bestseller… for adults, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success. In this new book, children will discover seven "Keys" to living a happy and meaningful life. For example, the "Key to All Good Things" teaches kids about giving and receiving, and explains that what they put out to the world is what they will get back. The "Key to Reaching Your Dreams" helps children realize how much power they have over their own lives and where this power comes from. Each of the seven sections in this book presents a Key, as well as a beautifully illustrated example emphasizing how it works in the world. These Keys, which have their origins in ancient Indian teachings, give children what Deepak believes are the most important traits they can possess: the ability to love and have compassion . . . and to spread that love and compassion to others.

This book reports the findings of two field studies conducted between 1993 and 2001 in seven townships and six provinces… in China. The authors describe the process of rural urbanization and its related economic, social, and political changes by focusing mainly on the zhen (town), in addition to administrative offices and companies involved in the local economy, and village committees. The authors show that the social changes resulting from China's economic reforms are occurring mainly from below, and that this process is also resulting in a weakening of the economic and political dominance of the central government. Other changes discussed in this study include the development of new ownership structures and the increasing dominance of the private sector; a shift in the functions of administrative offices as the bureaucracy becomes increasingly business oriented; the rise of a new local elite; a rebirth of traditional social structures (clans, local associations); and the emergence of new interest groups and institutions to represent their needs.
