Publisher's Summary

David Broder of The Washington Post joins Bob to talk politics. Next, Peter Hessler, former Beijing correspondent for The New Yorker, spent seven years driving through China's vast and seemingly impenetrable landscape. He writes about the migrant workers, farmers, and peasants he met far from China's big cities, just as their lives began to be affected by the modern world. Hessler's book Country Driving; A Journey Through China From Farm to Factory is the final installment of his trilogy, which includes River Town and Oracle Bones. Then, in this week's installment of our ongoing series This I Believe, Bob talks with curator Dan Gediman about the essay of Robert B. Powers. He entered police work after serving as a cavalryman in World War I. He was a deputy sheriff in New Mexico and Arizona, and was chief of police for Bakersfield, California. Powers co-authored A Guide to Race Relations for Police Officers. [Broadcast Date: March 5, 2010]
