I need the following two articles about Chinese Dream from The Times, but I am not a subscriber who is allowed to read them. Could anyone provide me the copies of them. THANKS VERY MUCH!

Oh, I'm sorry. I thought I just needed the two only and did not have to subscribe for merely two.
I'm SORRY. If I really need to subscribe to it, I would do it, anyway.

3unorchid, you should check with your local library. Most public libraries have subscriptions to major newspapers and serial publications, and you can log in with your library card number through the library's website and retrieve the articles. If you are unsure how to do this, you can also usually have a reference librarian retrieve the articles for you. Of course, this is dependent upon how things work in the library system where you live. I am an American librarian, and I'm not sure how comprehensive subscriptions are at libraries in other countries.

Lucie -

Unfortunately, libraries are not integral to society in China. There are numerous historical collections of ancient texts in buildings all over China, but the concept of libraries as we know them has not caught on.

This is probably because China's 'coming out' coincided with the huge technological revolution which brought us the World Wide Web. Entering the world stage in the 1980's for the first time has required immense effort and I think libraries were pretty low on the list in the midst of trying to provide so many other things needed to bring them to the point of being able to participate fully on a world stage.

(When I first arrived there I was still working on the final draft of my post-grad thesis. As I would be working at a Uni I wasn't worried: until I discovered that the one empty, very small library on campus had no access to any scholarly data bases, was unmanned most of the day, and stocked only the Chinese text-books the State decreed for each subject. Total nightmare!)

3unorchid: You have actually done some of us a favor: provoked intellectual curiosity.

Here is to be found some information about the 'Chinese Dream' from a context closer to the horse's mouth.
http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/china/Chinese-dream.html Does it compare at all with the 'American Dream'?

Thanks to both of you and other posters for the info! Interesting.

The BBC called the paper "state-run."[12]According to a 1993 book, China Daily is run by Publicity Department of the Communist Party of China.[13]
