China’s Civilian Army: The Making of Wolf Warrior Diplomacy
June 10, 2021 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
In the early days of the People’s Republic, diplomats were highly-disciplined, committed communists who feared revealing any weakness to the threatening capitalist world. Remarkably, the model that revolutionary leader Zhou Enlai established continues to this day despite the massive changes the country has undergone in recent decades.
Drawing for the first time on the memoirs of more than a hundred retired diplomats as well as Martin’s first-hand reporting, this groundbreaking book blends history with current events to tease out enduring lessons about the kind of power China is set to become. The webinar talk will be moderated by Susan Shirk.
