BEIJING air jordan 6 wheat golden harvest , Dec. 3 (Xinhua) -- Former German Chancellor Helmut Schmidt wrote a review on Chinese President Xi Jinping's new book on governance, saying the book offers the world a better understanding of China's development.

"Xi Jinping: The Governance of China" contains speeches, answers to questions and instructions by Xi from Nov. 15, 2012 to June 13, 2014. It has been published in at least nine languages since September.

"A book like this will help foreign readers to gain a better and more objective understanding of China from historical and other perspectives," Schmidt wrote.

Schmidt said it was a regret that the Chinese leadership has always had a better understanding of the West than vice versa. The publishing of Xi's new book represents a positive attempt to change the status quo.

The book reveals the philosophy adopted by China's leadership and the strategic guidelines on which China's direction of development is based.

Having faith in China's growth model, the new generation of Chinese leadership with President Xi Jinping at the core also needs to deal with the important air jordan 6 retro wheat , strenuous and complicated tasks brought about by high-speed economic development, he said.

President Xi will pay special attention to problems caused by corruption, environmental pollution, illegal occupation of land, labor disputes, and threats to food safety, the former Chancellor wrote.

He also pointed out several major issues facing China such as pollution air jordan 6 wheat pre order , aging population and the household registration system reform.

Schmidt said Confucianism is making a return as a philosophy embedded within the Chinese minds, citing the interpretation of Confucian principles by President Xi in the book. He said during the 5,000-year course of Chinese culture, there has rarely been any trace of imperialist thinking, and China has always honored peace above all else.

"Often times the West finds it hard to suppress the impulse to act as a lecturer with regard to China and its leaders, which usually results in failure stemming from ignorance and arrogance," Schmidt wrote.

"The West needs to apply more common sense air jordan 6 wheat shoes , abandon its condescending attitude, and let fair play apply," he said.

Former President George W. Bush said Tuesday that he and his father believe Jeb Bush should run for president but ultimately the former Florida governor must make a decision regardless of any pressure from the family.

"I can tell you I can speak for 41," Bush said, referring to the 41st president, George H.W. Bush, during the official launch of the 43rd president's book at his dad's presidential library center at Texas A&M University. "He ought to run for president. He would make a great president."

"We can pressure him all we want air jordan 6 wheat for sale , but it's not going to matter. ... You can't pressure somebody on such an important decision. It's not going to cause him to think positively or negatively if we all continue to harass him. Only he can decide."

With his father and mother a few feet from him in the front row of an auditorium filled with a friendly audience of several hundred people, Bush was responding to questions from Andrew Card, his father's transportation secretary and his own White House chief of staff, primarily about his personal book "41: A Portrait of My Father." The older Bush, seated in a wheelchair, smiled and waved but did not speak at the event.

George W. Bush said he didn't know of any timetable for a decision but said from speaking with his brother he knows Jeb Bush "doesn't like the idea of a political class."

"The idea of 'Bush, Clinton air jordan 6s wheat , Bush, Obama, Bush' troubles him, which speaks to his great integrity," George W. Bush said of the succession of recent presidents. "So I said: 'How does this sound? Bush, Clinton, Bush air jordan 6 wheat 2017 , Obama, Clinton,'" George W. Bush added, referring to the potential presidential run of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

"The point is you don't get to pick the environment in which you run."

The comments were his most detailed to date about the possibility of continuing the Bush political dynasty. George W. Bush said Sunday on CBS that there was a 50-50 chance Jeb would run. Jeb Bush was not in attendance at the book event Tuesday.

George W. Bush, 68, said he wrote the book now while his father, 90 and in fragile health air jordan 6 wheat , was still alive and able to "see how much I care for him" and how much other people care for him. He also said a favorable reassessment of George H.W. Bush's presidency is emerging, despite it being a single term and being "overshadowed" by the two terms of predecessor Ronald Reagan.

"This is a love story. It's not an objective analysis," he said of the book. "It's a story of an extraordinary man, in my judgment, the finest one-term president our country has ever had."

The book includes Bush's take on his father's early failures in politics, his decision to go to war with Iraq in 1991 and the 1992 re-election loss to Bill Clinton. In the book, he says his father seriously considered not even running for re-election jordan 6 wheat golden harvest , despite loving his job, because he thought holding the presidency had placed son Neil under undue legal scrutiny for his role as a director of a large Colorado-based savings and loan that failed in the late 1980s.

The book includes personal anecdotes, including how the elder Bush, described as "a family man first," struggled with the death of daughter Robin from leukemia in 1953 and how his dad sobbed at the hospital nursery glass following the birth six years later of daughter Dorothy.

He dismissed Tuesday as "psychobabble" any suggestions of friction between presidential father and president son and credited his dad with serving as an example for when he got to the White House.

"You never know until you get there," he said. "He helped a lot by checking in on occasion."

Bush also made light of his appearance at the Trav.
