How will China's past impact its future? Professors Joseph Esherick (University of California, San Diego) and Lowell Dittmer (University of California, Berkeley) discussed the contradictory elements of a tradition of centrality and superiority versus a century of Western-oriented humiliation, and how these factors shape Chinese politics. This discussion was moderated by U.Va. Politics Professor Brantly Womack and was part of a semester-long series on China's Rise in Historical Context.
