In this globalized 21st century, Chinese and western people are getting closer day by day both in work and in their daily experiences. The cultures are interacting and influencing each other. Gateway to the World was born out of this reality.

Gateway to the World is a different type of cultural reader. It includes news articles, readers' letters, jokes, short stories, songs, interviews with famous people, conversations in Internet chat rooms, and advertisements. These are the kinds of short texts that western people read every day. They are full of shared cultural knowledge about marriage, relationships, money, recent social history, child education, tensions between the generations, etc. Gateway to the World offers Chinese readers unusual insights into the daily realities of westerners. It expands cultural awareness in a light-hearted way.

在西方任何一个工作单位坐下来休息喝咖啡时,不一会儿就会有人提到体重和节食。许多西方人,不仅仅是女性,都很担心他们的体重,而且很多人都尝试过减肥食谱。说来也怪,西方文化对身材苗条的看重超过了以往任何时候。该文化中的“美人”——演员、舞蹈家和时装模特——都竭尽全力使自己瘦得不能再瘦。纤细的形象在电视、电影、广告牌以及时尚杂志里比比皆是。一个巨大的减肥业应运而生,以服务于这份对减肥的着迷。年,仅美国一个国家,减肥业总值就高达亿美元。减肥食谱数也数不清:葡萄柚减肥食谱、普里特金节食减肥法和阿特金斯饮食法。还有体重观察者俱乐部来监督节食和提供团体支持。

If you sit down for a coffee break in any western workplace, somebody will mention weight and diet before long. Many westerners, and not only women, are concerned about their weight, and a huge number have tried weight-loss diets. Oddly, western culture values slimness more than it ever did. The culture's "beautiful people"—its actors, dancers and fashion models—struggle to be impossibly thin. Images of thinness are everywhere: on television, films, billboards and in the pages of glossy magazines. An enormous weight-loss industry exists to serve this obsession. In the year 2000, it was worth US$33 billion in the United States alone. There is an endless number of diets—the grapefruit diet, the Pritikin diet, and the Atkins diet. There are also Weight Watchers clubs to supervise the diet and provide group support.
