|Long Description||Glance at any recent newspaper, magazine or mainstream website and one will encounter some mention of China. The number of Americans and Europeans studying the Chinese language has soared in recent years. Foreign investment in China and Chinese exports to the world are increasing at a record pace. Western political leaders ponder how to join or combat the country's expanding influence. Yet, this emerging discovery of China should more correctly be described as a re-discovery. European and American churches have sent missionaries to China for more than five centuries. Western traders and businesses have sought Chinese products, and pursued new markets for their own goods, for a commensurate period. Still, this newfound interest in China suggests there is a need for a sourcebook that goes beyond the narrow boundaries of political and intellectual thought; a sourcebook that explores the broad cultural, social and ethnic trends that are the foundation of a 21 st century China. A variety of perspectives introduce readers to the issues, trends and challenges of each particular period. This text goes beyond boundaries of political and intellectual thought; a sourcebook that explores the broad cultural, social and ethnic trends that are the foundation of a 21 st century China. The different viewpoints presented will lead students to rethink the way in which historical events are commonly understood.|

This weekend was a long one. We installed a new database server and copied all the data from the old server to the new one.
Then of course, we had to sync all the new data that collected on the old server while we were setting up the new server.
It was a time consuming process but we didn't have even one minute of down time over the weekend. The switch over was seamless.
The old server is becoming our backup server with instant data replication. This way, we no longer need to shut the site down for a couple hours each week to perform data backups. We can also run some of the more processor intense extract processes using the backup server instead of the live main server.
All these changes should mean more up time, faster response time and fewer issues long term.
