This series of lectures explore and compare political culture between China and America. The study of political culture is often subjective or even biased. Seemingly objective sampling can be inevitably superficial. A sense of distance from the perspective of research may be beneficial. The true face of Lushan is lost to my sight, for it is right in this mountain that I reside. This research takes a different perspective: Tocqueville looks at America from a French point of view; Weber sees China from a German point of view; the lecturer is a Chinese American. The purpose is not to provide answers, but to encourage students to think about some important issues of the comparison.
