Chapter IV describes the course of New China's pursuit of democracy and the prejudices of the West. The fifth chapter elaborates the integration of Chinese and American cultures. Chapter 6 reveals the false news and the cognitive gap. Chapter 7 discusses how China and the United States avoid military conflicts and achieve peaceful coexistence.
