Are China's military capabilities able to meet the challenges of the modern era? How will China address domestic policy issues regarding Tibet, as well as regional concerns posed by nations such as North Korea and Taiwan? Michael Swaine (Carnegie Endowment for International Peace) joined Professor Evelyn Rawski (University of Pittsburgh) to discuss new security challenges facing the emerging power. 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.
