Abstract

The reason that Chinese navy sailors must be good looking and well-mannered, according to a navy spokesman, is that, as China opens up to the world and its navy vessels visit and engage in joint exercises with other countries, its sailors become representatives of China. Beyond the media's attention-grabbing headlines, there is now established academic research from the USA and UK, as well as some emerging indications from Australia, highlighting links between an individual's looks and his or her pay and employment prospects.
