Wasserstrom on China, Part II

Resuming from where he left us hanging, at the conclusion of the brief June 2 interview, is UCI Humanities Professor Jeff Wasserstrom. Topics include what will become of Gu Yi, his family, and the other signatories of their earnest letter of protest in The Guardian; what impact will it have in Mainland China; and how can Americans better understand the People‚Äôs Republic of China,-why do we get it so wrong? Required reading is Wasserstrom’s book: China in the 21st Century: What Everyone Should Know, published by Oxford University Press.
