Tuesday November 17, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, repeating until Tuesday November 24, 2020
To what extent, if at all, is China a threat to the security and prosperity of the United States, or to our leadership role in the world? In part, the answer to that question depends on the answer to another question: “How stable is communist party rule in China?” Join instructor William Taylor to look at the various ways in which the party seeks to maintain control over the Chinese people, and how sustainable these methods are in the long run. We will be reading China: The Fragile Superpower, by Susan L. Shirk, 2007/2008 edition. You are encouraged to order the book as soon as you can. This is an online class and will require an internet connection to attend. Register: [email protected]
Tuesdays, Oct 6 – Nov 24. 7-8:15 pm.
