The Hoover Institution hosted "'Xi Jinping and China in the 21st Century: What Everyone Needs to Know" on Tuesday, March 20, 2018 from 10:30am - 11:45am EST.

In the third edition of their popular China in the 21st Century: What Everyone Needs to Know, UC Irvine professor Jeffrey Wasserstrom and China expert Maura Cunningham provide cogent answers to urgent questions regarding the world's newest superpower and offer a framework for understanding China's meteoric rise from developing country to superpower. In this preview of the new edition, Wasserstrom and Cunningham will discuss the Chinese Communist Party, the building boom in Shanghai, and the environmental fallout of rapid Chinese industrialization, among other topics. They will explain unique aspects of Chinese culture, such as the one-child policy, and provide insight into Chinese-American relations, a subject that has become increasingly fraught during the Trump era. They also predict how we might expect China to act in the future vis-à-vis the United States, Russia, India, and its East Asian neighbors.

Moderated by Michael Auslin, Williams-Griffis Fellow in Contemporary Asia, Hoover Institution
