This Week’s Mtg: Does China’s Past Predict Its Future?

Our relationship with China will be one of the most important — maybe the most important –international relationships of the 21st century.  So, what do we do?  Maybe history can teach us something.  Jim Z., our resident China historian (PhD) will take us through this one.  He will discuss how China’s past leaves clues to predicting the rising giant’s future development.  Will China stay inward-looking?  Will it stay stable?  Will its rulers yield power peacefully?  Will China expand political participation to the point of democracy, or will a more disruptive process have to occur?

We await Jim’s presentation.


And, from me here are a few short, generalist-oriented articles on China’s rise.
