My two cents on the Troy Parfitt Book is:

He probably has few real Chinese friends. Every comment I read and quote I’ve seen seems to come from an outsider – an outsider who has read and observed, but still an outsider. I think China has a lot to teach the world, if they can just throw the parasites off … the human spirit is beautiful and indomitable and Universal. There are no exceptions to the human spirit and that is something we should all remember when someone says a certain country is populated by dipshits and sunflower seed spitting barefoot half-human peasants. Or dipshits and tabaccy juice spittin inbred half-human rednecks.

Here is a book that is a bit sensational (and set in malaysia) but it comes recommended:
