Description

China's political development has been fundamentally different from that of the West. Will China's contemporary society demand reforms similar to developed countries? Join us as professors R. KEITH SCHOPPA (Loyola College) and JOSEPH FEWSMITH (Boston University) discuss China's unique political development and whether its institutions are capable of facing the challenges of a diverse and prosperous society. This discussion will be moderated by U.Va. Politics Professor BRANTLY WOMACK and is part of a semester-long series on China's Rise in Historical Context.
