China is an expansive country with thousands of years of history. This history has shaped China into the highly diverse and complex country that it is today. Let Jeff Steinberg present to you a picture of the current Chinese government, economy, culture, military posture and global goals. Discuss some of the leading figures of China beginning with the 20th century including the transition from Emperor to Republic. Understand how China was brought into the global economy and what the current economic challenges are as the country plans its future in the 21st century. Jeff Steinberg has traveled to China 2-3 times a year since 2010 and through an academic dialogue he has developed a unique perspective of this fascinating country.
