DuMont Reiseabenteuer Orakelknochen: Eine Zeitreise durch by Peter Hessler

By Peter Hessler

China verstehen
Hautnah erlebt der Journalist und Auslandskorrespondent Peter Hessler in China die Dekade der großen Reformen: den wirtschaftlichen, gesellschaftlichen und kulturellen Umbruch, die millionenfache Migration vom Land in die neuen Megacities an den Küsten, die Zersetzung einer Kultur, die von uralten Traditionen geprägt ist. Hessler erzählt das Geschehen aus der Perspektive der Betroffenen. Selbst die zeitgeschichtlichen Ereignisse, über die er als Korrespondent berichtet, beleuchtet er aus der Sicht einfacher Leute. Er lebt in einer kleinen Mietwohnung in den Gassen eines alten Pekinger hutong-Viertels, und von hier unternimmt er seine Reisen durch das Reich der Mitte, erlebt kulturelle Barrieren, historische Empfindlichkeiten und menschliche Schicksale. Der Wechsel von Themen, Geschichten und Erzählebenen macht Hessler's Buch so spannend: Der Leser beginnt, China als Ganzes mit seinen unterschiedlichsten Facetten zu erleben - und zu verstehen. In den literarischen Bericht seines Reporterlebens, seiner Begegnungen und seiner Reisen mischt Hessler auch seine Exkursionen in die reiche chinesische Geschichte. Manche Episode bleibt am Ende so rätselhaft wie die Weissagungen und Prophezeiungen der Orakelknochen, der ältesten Funde chinesischer Schriftzeichen, die in Knochen oder Schildkrötenpanzer graviert wurden.
