Zheng He in the People's Republic

Thanks to a correspondent on the H-World list, I've been alerted to an article in the Independent about the use of Zheng He in China "as a symbol of emerging modern China's peaceful rise." There is a replica ship being built for display at the 2008 Olympics.

Unfortunately the Independent article (of 15 September) has already gone behind a money-wall. If you are interested, though, keep an eye out -- it will pop up somewhere else.
For instance, see this World Security Network post reprinted from the International Herald Tribune.
